This Greek Grain Salad makes great use Mediterranean flavors. Adding a whole grain to the mix adds fibre-filled carbs for an energizing twist on classic Greek salad. Pearled wheat berries are my favorite grain to add to this salad – they are deliciously nutty and chewy – but any whole grain you have on hand works perfectly. You can even make it a Greek Pasta Salad with lentil pasta. I love this recipe because it is simple, makes use of leftovers, and easy to put together for a quick weekday lunch!
If your following the Fundamental Four Formula the meal is a perfect lunch breakdown with:
- Protein: chicken
- Fats: feta and olives
- Volume: peppers, cucumber, tomato, onions
- Fibre-Filled Carbs: whole grain rice or quinoa
- Freebies: lemon, salt, and pepper
This is the perfect lunch recipe if you are following the F4 plate visuals. I often have 1-2 servings to feel full & satisfied!
