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.
Struggling to Start the Autoimmune Protocol?
Living with chronic illness can be isolating enough without overhauling your lifestyle, often without the full support of family members who don’t want their diets to change. But you don’t have to go through it alone. SAD to AIP in SIX, from Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and author of The Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook Angie Alt, will coach you step-by-step through the transition from the standard American diet (SAD) to the autoimmune protocol (AIP). The six-week course includes coaching from Angie and her team, support from your peers in the program, and reference materials–it’s an incredible bargain compared to private health coaching sessions. If you’re struggling to make the change to the AIP or feeling isolated on your health journey, this is the program for you!
