Would you enjoy a new twist on the Classic Greek Salad, add chick peas. You might have family members (like my husband) who thinks he must eat meat to get necessary protein. This isn’t true because dairy, beans, and grains can be combined to create all amino acids needed for healthy growth of cells. Serve with this– 3/4 cup light or nonfat, fruit flavored yogurt, 1/2 cup sliced fresh strawberries, 1 1/3 tbsp. chopped walnuts.
- 1/4 cup chickpeas (garbanzo beans) canned, low sodium, rinsed and drained
- 1/4 small red onion
- 1 Italian plum tomato
- 4 small olives
- 1 oz. low fat feta cheese
- 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 2 tbsp. salad dressing, low fat or nonfat; low sodium
Rinse and chop onion and tomato; slice olives and crumble feta cheese. In a bowl, combine chickpeas with vegetables, feta cheese and oregano and toss well. Place rinse and dried spinach on plate, top with chickpeas mixture and drizzle with dressing. Serve.
