This Greek Salad makes for an incredible main dish and can also be served as a side salad if you omit the chicken. It’s autoimmune protocol compliant, meaning it has no dairy or nightshades like a more traditional Greek Salad would, and it’s just drowning in flavor. You won’t miss the feta or tomatoes at all, I promise! This is one of my favorite salads to throw together for a quick lunch, with or without the meat.
Looking for Low-FODMAP Recipes?
The low-FODMAP diet is often prescribed for people with IBS or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), and there’s a huge overlap of that demographic with people with autoimmune disease. My e-book 28 Days of Low-FODMAP AIP combines both IBS- and autoimmune-friendly diets in a 28-day meal plan designed to jump start and simplify this often-challenging diet change. Just you wait: The meal plan includes 50 exclusive low-FODMAP recipes you won’t find on my website or anywhere else, with dishes like Chicken Vindalo, Jambalaya, and crispy, crunchy Tostones. You’ll be amazed at the variety of flavors still available to you! The ebook is available as a digital download for $9.99.
