Chef Tips

  • To reduce sodium, use plain cooked chicken in place of the commercial roasted varieties which can be high in sodium.

  • Experiment with the salad:
    Substitute the basil/parsley with cilantro
    Substitute the feta cheese for one of your choice
    Try a different type of pasta: Fusilli, Rigatoni, Rotelle, Rotini
    Try it with your favorite dressing
    Try it with sliced olives
