It’s beautiful outside! Finally, we can soak up one of those lunch-on-the-deck kind of weeks, and I have just the recipe for you. This mediterranean chopped salad is full of fresh, crunchy vegetables, fiber-laden chick peas and non-fat feta cheese for a guilt-free meal you’ll love.

That’s SO Jenn’s vibrant dressing adds a little healthy fat from olive oil, brightness from a touch of lemon juice (my favorite secret weapon!) and gives you that Greek-style taste from red wine vinegar and oregano. You’ll be ready for swimsuit season in no time!

Ingredients:

1 (10 oz.) bag romaine lettuce

1 pint grape tomatoes, halved

1 seedless cucumber, quartered

1 (15.5 oz.) can chickpeas

About 3/4 cup non-fat feta

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1 1/2 teaspoons oregano
