Lemon Garlic Greek Salad

Light, refreshing, totally clean and delicious! 🙂

Ingredients: (Makes 1 serving)

  • 1 cup (about 4-5 ounces) of shrimp OR chicken
  • 1/4 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/4 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp of kalamata (or black) olives, halved
  • 2 tbsp chopped red onion (boo, I didn’t have any on hand)
  • 1 tbsp of (garlic herb) feta cheese
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 tsp minced garlic
  • Dash of dried oregano
  • 1-2 tbsp low calorie, low sugar Balsamic vinagrette

Optional:

  • 2 tbsp diced avocado
  • 1/4 cup garbanzo beans, rinsed (could sub for meat to make this vegetarian)

Mix all ingredients (except the salad dressing). Add the dressing one tablespoon at a time ( one was plenty for me). Enjoy immediately, or you may store this covered in the fridge for a few days as well!
