Greek Chicken Salad with Tzatziki Dressing

Greek Chicken Salad with Tzatziki Dressing

I discovered Greek food this summer, and when I finally tried the chicken salad that the Greek place at the mall makes, I knew I had to come up with my own recipe. This Greek Chicken Salad with Tzatziki Dressing recipe is great for meal-preppers like myself or people who don’t have a lot of time to cook, because you basically do all of the hard work the night before and then throw everything together when you’re ready to eat it.

Paleo Roasted Bacon Brussels Sprouts

Growing up I always thought Brussels sprouts were the worst! Brussels sprouts were really the only vegetable that I didn’t eat. I even ate my beets, turnips and spinach!
