Satisfying Greek Salad

Every few months I remember to eat healthier! l usually say I’m “trying to try” again! lol This Greek salad allows me to keep things light while still letting me have all the great flavors I enjoy.

While you can definitely customize for your taste, here’s what I used:

  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Hard Salami
  • Feta Cheese
  • Kalamata Olives
  • Manzanilla Olives
  • Roasted Red Peppers
  • Banana Pepper Rings
  • Greek Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

Sometimes I switch things up and add cherry tomatoes, fresh green bell pepper, and a bit of diced red onion. I feel like as long you have a a heap of greens, feta cheese, and a tasty Greek dressing you’re on the right path.

Assembly is pretty standard…check out these pics for my method.

I like to dress the greens and toss it around a bit before adding the toppings to make sure the greens are coated, but not unnecessarily soaked. A little salad dressing can go a long way.

As you can see, I just sliced or chopped the ingredients to be bite sized and layered them all on top of the lettuce. You shouldn’t need anymore salad dressing, but you can definitely add a drizzle at the end if you’d like!


Teriyaki Chicken Tenders

One of my favorite mall food court meals is from the Chinese restaurant. Pizza is fine, and fries are always nice…but there’s nothing quite like getting that combo with two meats, fried rice, and an egg roll! These days I rarely go to the mall, and even more rarely go to the food court for my favorite treat. That’s why I needed to recreate that delicious Teriyaki chicken at home!

Frying Alternatives

We all enjoy fried food, right? If you choose to prepare fried food, how many of you enjoy that fried food smell that’s left in your kitchen? *crickets* Exactly, that’s definitely not my favorite part. Oh, there’s also that whole thing about fried foods not being the healthiest…but honestly that hasn’t been my main concern! lol Whatever the reason, I think it’s good to have some cooking alternatives that can rival frying.
