Tired of the same old lunch?

I love to enjoy a nice, big salad for lunch. However, it can get boring eating the same old thing every day. This recipe is a quick, easy and healthy salad with a fun twist!

On page 14 of the brand new Mixing Bowl Magazine you can find my recipe for "Greek Salad with Pita Croutons." Check it out!

Greek Salad with Pita Croutons

1 whole grain pita
1 lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and black pepper to taste
3 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1/2 cup chopped cucumber
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1/2 cup chopped red sweet pepper
2 tablespoons reduced-fat feta cheese
1/2 cup canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons chopped kalamata olives

1) Place pita on baking sheet and toast in a 350 degree oven for 8 minutes or until crunchy. Chop into bite sized pieces.
2) In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, oil, garlic, salt and pepper.
3) In a serving bowl, toss together remaining ingredients, dressing and pita pieces. Makes 4 servings.
