On Monday nights Kyle and I run sprints and then we eat salad. It's a good way to get our week off to a healthy and fat burning start.
This week's salad was a winner! And with a name like Zeus it better be!
Mondays can stink sometimes, so I make my life easier by using a rotisserie chicken for the salad. It's like a Monday gift to myself! (that and the DVR'ed Real Housewives of OC) Plus, I know I will like the leftovers tomorrow which gives me another healthy, clean meal to look forward to.
This salad was a notch above excellent because I was using a home-grown tomato. Those always have MUCH more flavor then those watery, red orbs they sell at the grocery store. Thank you to Amanda from my chemistry class for the tomato.
Zeus's Greek Salad
- 1 tomato (diced with no goo)
- torn spinach
- 1/2 cucumber (peeled)
- 1 mini sweet yellow pepper
- 4oz rotisserie chicken
- 2oz feta cheese
- 5 black olives (quartered)
- Any Greek style dressing (we used Ken's Northern Italian)
- Croutons (optional and not highly recommended)
Do you have any healthy traditions in your house?
Love and international greens,
Carissa & Kyle
