A Quick & Healthy Greek Salad

Tonight I have to do things in reverse home. I carpooled home with my co-worker - yeah for one step towards being better to Earth. I whipped up a quick dinner, then, I will finish up another project for work before working out. Then, read/relax......I am pretty tired tonight though so not sure how much reading/relaxing is going to happen.

This afternoon my snack was two more of the 80 calorie Pesto Pizzettas - so good, but, seriously a serving should be more than two!


Here is the Quick & Healthy Greek Salad I whipped today for my Jump Start dinner - I changed it up a bit to make it more how I like it.


4 oz grilled chicken (threw a breast on the grill with a little garlic salt & freshly ground pepper)
3 cups chopped organic romaine lettuce (the best lettuce ever!)
1 cup chopped english cucumber
1 c fabulous cherry tomatoes, halved
4 black olives, halved
2 Tbsp fat free feta (it's not as strong as the lowfat & full fat & I like that about it!)
1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1/2 a lemon)
1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

This was one tasty salad - I am not much of a Greek food fan, but, I found myself digging this salad. I got so much chewing pleasure out of it. :D



I also whipped up yet another soup while dinner was cooking for tomorrow - yeah! Can't wait to try it.

Tonight's workout is back to 10 minutes of stretching & body weight exercises. I am definitely looking forward to it.

  1. Beautiful salad! Love greek food!! Those pesto pizzettas look amazing too! Don't you hate when amazing food is such a small serving size? Haha such a tease.

  2. Missy ~ Thanks - I totally agree with you! I am definitely someone who likes a real portion, not a bite :)
