This is a new favorite at my house. I had a similar dish at a restaurant recently and decided to make my own version at home. Home run!!!
It’s really quick to put together, takes very little prep, and has some different flavor combinations than my usual weeknight dinners. Better yet, it’s filled with protein and really healthy ingredients - another big win. I whipped it together one night when I had some leftover chicken breast in the fridge. It’s a great way to use up any leftover meat, or you can buy a ready-made chicken in a pinch.
It’s kind of my version of a middle eastern salad, and is really delicious. Try it!
