Fish Souvlaki Salad that’s so tasty and delicious, it doesn’t even taste like light meal!
We’ve been eating a lot of sweets lately. I’m guessing this is partly due to stress (because my househelp, Lani, resigned a few weeks ago to go back to the province and I’m back to taking care of everything at home) but mainly because of cravings.
Now that the cravings has subsided, it’s time to go back to healthy eating habits. I’ve been in the mood to eat a lot of Greek and Persian food lately and this salad here today is inspired by it.
Fish Souvlaki has been on the table for a couple of weeks now. I pair it with rice for Ykaie’s school baon and peanubutter♥’s office lunch. I thought it would really be healthy to turn it into a salad. So I made this with ingredients I have here at home like the black olives and cherry tomatoes. I’m thinking this would be great with a lot cucumbers, feta cheese, and kalamata olives.
If you’re into salads, then you have got to make this. You can marinate the cream dory overnight and have them ready the next day for pan-grilling or pan frying. You can have this for lunch, dinner, school baon for the kids, office baon for the husband and as a salad if you prefer a lighter fare like we have here.
Since I made a lot of it, I set aside some in microwaveable containers for easy meals ala diet delivery. Kunin na lang from the fridge and voila! you have yourself a light dinner.
