Chef's 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.
