With the holidays being over, it’s time to get back to eating healthy.  When I wanted to lose some weight, I chose salads for lunch every day, and even now, salads are one of my favorite go-to meals.  The store sells a carton that has four different kinds of lettuce in it so I pick that up, some romaine, and spinach so there’s always a variety of lettuce in the fridge.  I’ve been wanting to try a Greek salad for awhile now, and this past week I finally did.  I must say, it was delicious!  The dressing is simple, not overpowering, and with all the veggies, this salad was perfect.  I do like to have a good bit of protein in my salads so next time I may add in some grilled chicken or serve it on the side.  If you’ve never tried a Greek salad before, this recipe is a great one to try.
