I have mentioned that I have been doing a low-carb type diet for a few months now. It’s been working out great but the biggest challenge has really been coming up with interesting recipes so I don’t get bored. When my meals are boring and tasteless that’s when I start to crave the not-so-healthy foods.
Today I thought I’d share a recipe that is definitely not boring! This recipe for Mufaletta Salad is one of my favorite things to put together when I want a big punch of flavor in a flash.
I actually tried this recipe because my husband loves a Muffaletta sandwich. It sounded like something he would like. I am a huge olive fan so I figured I’d like it as well. Well, I have made this recipe at least 4 or 5 times so far so I thought it was time to share it with you guys. It’s super simple to make especially if you have your chicken done ahead of time. So the next time you roast a chicken just save the extra for this salad and all you’ll have to do is roast your veggies and make your olive mixture and you can have dinner on the table in maybe 15 minutes – max!
