The Fitnessista I spent some time perusing this blog last night, and came up with a lot of good snack ideas for my quest to lose my winter coat. This Greek Salad had my mouth watering, and today while I was shopping at Trader Joe's, I picked up what I needed to make it, along with a couple of additions of my own.
Her recipe called for
1 can chick peas
Few grape tomatoes, halved1 cucumber, seeded and diced
1 red pepper, diced
I also used 1 yellow pepper, diced
Juice of 1 Meyer lemon ( I used a lemon off of my tree, not a Meyer )
fresh parsley ( I didn't use parsley)
2 T hemp oil ( I used olive oil )
fresh cracked pepper
fresh sea salt
I used lots of fresh basil in place of the parsley
I grow mint, and used a good handful of chopped mint leaves
I also bought lemon pepper pappardelle pasta, and cooked this al dente, then chilled under cold running water for this dish.
Enjoy your weekend! I plan to!!
