Greek Salad!


​Have you ever had a chopped salad before? They are the BEST! ​ Because everything is chopped up into tiny portions, you get deliciousness in every bite and that makes them a lunch to look forward to. ​ As an added bonus, because of all that chopped goodness, they require less dressing than most other salads, which is perfect if you have a body transformation goal. ​ TIP: taking the time to really chop up those ingredients before you put them in the salad bowl pays off! Every salad I assemble at home involves my scissors going wild! ​ Feel free to customize this salad recipe to suit your own tastes. Try adding chopped grilled chicken, steak, or shrimp!
