Notes

Substitutions for this recipe:
  • Dairy Free- We love feta or goat cheese in this recipe, but you can skip it if you are dairy free
  • Nut Free - You can omit nuts from this recipe
  • Nuts- You can sub in pecans, or chopped toasted walnuts in this recipe for a yummy crunch
  • Herb - Try using parsley or even some fresh thyme in the dressing
  • Veggies - Cooked zucchini would also be yummy in this recipe. If it's the fall you can sub in butternut squash or some dried cranberries. You can also add in chopped spinach for more greens!
  • WW Freestyle note: Using fat free feta will save you 1SP per serving. Using spray olive oil will save you 2SP per serving
