Today I am sharing a salad that you can whip up and call Christmas.
Ok, maybe call it Tabouli Salad, but its red and green colors are just asking for a little holiday recognition, right?!
GRAIN FREE TABOULI SALAD (serves 4)
2 cucumbers, chopped
1 cup of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half (a serrated knife does the trick nicely)
1 red bell pepper, seeds removed and diced\
Handful of fresh parsley, minced
4 Tbs. of olive oil
2 Tbs. of fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. of sea salt
1 tsp. of dried oregano
1 tsp. of Italian seasonings
Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt, dried oregano and Italian seasonings in a mixing bowl. I like using a baker’s spatula to do this which technically is not whisking but…
Toss cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, red bell pepper and Italian parsley in the bowl until combined.
Serve as a side salad or add 4-6 ounces of shredded chicken breast to make this a complete meal.
Hope you enjoy!
