Greek Salad For Lunch

Greek Salad For Lunch

saladgreek
For lunch today I decided to try a new greek dressing recipe to mix things up. I also added green olives(I was out of black), feta and pecans to my usual chicken salad. The dressing consisted of olive oil, red wine vinegar, onion/garlic powder, basil, oregano and a little dijon mustard. It was really nice 🙂 I kept adding more red wine vinegar as I ate though because I just love my salads on the more acidic side!
If you are wondering why I had balsamic vinegar out, it was just there as back-up in case I didn't like the new dressing, I love balsamic!

Today's Lunch & Dinner…

Egg Salad LunchLunch was a typical assorted vegetable salad with green onions(all my salads contain these, I can't live without them!) & 1 egg and a little chopped leftover turkey breast. Topped with a fat-free italian dressing!

For dinner I had another salad but this time is was sweet and crunchy! It had spinach, walnuts, strawberries, green onion(of course!) & some olive oil/white vinegar & 1/2 tsp splenda mixed together for a dressing. I ate this with a side of lemon chicken. Yummy 🙂
