Calorie-Bomb Salads Defused

Zorra the Great
Greek Salad

Mediterranean fare gets a lot of praise
for good reason: It’s loaded with hearthealthy
fats and fiber-rich vegetables.
But the marinated meats and big
chunks of feta cheese in Greek salads
can sabotage an otherwise healthy
diet. This mix doesn’t overdo it on
the olive oil, and the bed of hummus
packs a big protein punch.

2 ounces baby arugula
2 ounces romaine lettuce,
chopped
2 ounces English cucumber, diced
2 ounces kalamata olives, pitted
1 ounce red onion, julienned
5 baby tomatoes, halved
1 teaspoon fresh basil, chopped
1 ounce baked pita chips
1½ tablespoons lemon juice
1½ tablespoons olive oil
2 ounces fresh hummus

Combine all ingredients, toss with
lemon juice and olive oil, and serve
immediately on a bed of hummus.
