Greek Nachos

A lighter, healthier Greek twist on traditional nachos – made with whole wheat pita chips, hummus, cucumbers, tomatoes and feta.

I was asked to do a book review for the paperback book Snack Girl To The Rescue: Easy, Delicious Food for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner[1]. This book is a weight loss book as well as a cookbook, and although there are no photos, Lisa gives practical advice on getting healthy along with a bit of humor. The book has 100 recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but I thought I would try one of her snacks, because after all, she’s Snack Girl[2], right?

This was super easy to make would even work as a light vegetarian lunch. Next time I make this, I might even add some Kalamata olives and bell peppers. Enjoy!

Cobb Salad

Cobb Salad

by Pam on April 23, 2014

I just found my new favorite salad. This may not be a traditional Cobb Salad because  I used turkey breast instead of chicken and feta cheese instead of blue cheese, but that’s what I had on hand, so that’s what I used. It was hearty and filling without making me feel stuffed. I used Fran’s Vinaigrette and it topped this salad perfectly!

Place the romaine lettuce and mixed greens in the bottom of a salad bowl. Arrange the onion, turkey, tomato, feta cheese, carrots, bacon, hard boiled egg, and avocado in rows across the lettuce. Serve immediately with Fran’s Vinaigrette or dressing of your choice on the side. Enjoy.
