Life has been pretty hectic lately! We are trying get a lot of last minute wedding things done like favors, papery, practicing our dance moves (oo lala) and just all the other day to day things! Did I mention as well we’ve been hitting up the gym like crazy people?! We are down to 38 days! Yikes!
The other night, after an intense gym class, sports conditioning at Gold’s Gym, the last thing I wanted to do was cook. So I looked in the fridge and threw this together. I had read a similar recipe in Giada’s new cookbook, which is fabulous! The end result tasted like a deliciously dressed Greek Salad!
It was a touch light, so Paul says, but it was perfect for me J
