We are OBSESSED with Greek salads over here!!! They are a weekly staple in our eats and for good reason.

But when it come to making them, we are all about the chopped salad life. Diced ingredients into a bowl with a homemade dressing of sorts like this tahini yogurt one and topping with crispy crispy chickpeas because you know your girl loves a crunch.

This is one of those salads you can really jazz up however you want. Want some meat on top? Same – I usually add a grass-fed lamb burger, some grilled chicken thighs or breasts or some wild salmon. You can also add some shrimps to. Anything you want. Or you can keep things vegetarian and use the chickpeas as the protein, The salad is your oyster guys!

But don’t skimp out on the dressing when you make this. I have a feeling you will be just as obsessed with it as we are over here. It goes well on so many things too besides just salad. I dip veggies and crackers in it, smear it on top of some bread with avocado, anything.

Let us know what you think when you make this. I cannot wait to hear what you think!!
