I’m a huge fan of Mediterranean flavors and this one fits the bill. I liked this recipe because it didn’t require a lot of dishes, was easy to prepare, and tasted great! I got some help from my brother, who has always been a picky eater. Besides the sundried tomatoes, he gave this recipe a thumbs up (so you know it’s good).
Monday- Salmon with Mustard Dill Sauce with Asparagus and Brown Rice
Salmon is good on its own, but this sauce kicked it up a notch. You probably have caught on by now that I use Greek yogurt in everything, this recipe included. It only took a minute to mix together and was sooooo worth it! The brown rice soaked up some of the sauce making it taste even better too.
Tuesday- Buffalo Chicken Tacos
For ease of preparation, I made the chicken in the crock pot instead of on the grill and tossed it in some buffalo sauce. The tacos were filled with chicken, romaine lettuce, celery, blue cheese, a Greek yogurt (told you) based dressing. These could also pass as wraps for a more portable option.
Wednesday- Caprese Sandwiches with Strawberry, Almond and Goat Cheese Salad
There is no better flavor combination than tomato, mozzarella, and basil. I made mine grilled-cheese style so the mozzarella was warm and melty, but you could also toast the bread and add the tomato and mozzarella after. Drizzle on some balsamic vinegar and olive oil with a sprinkle of salt and pepper to really make the flavors pop. I wanted more than just a garden salad on the side and strawberries have been on sale lately, so this strawberry, almond and goat cheese salad came to life!
Thursday- Greek Turkey Burgers and Salad
I told you these turkey burgers would make another appearance! We used the frozen, leftover patties from last week and the leftover strawberry, almond, and goat cheese salad from the night before, so no extra prep was involved.
Friday- Homemade Margherita Pizza
We were craving homemade pizza on Friday, so I threw together some homemade, whole wheat pizza dough and used the leftover tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil from the caprese sandwiches to top the pizza. Delicious!
