This salad goes great with a grilled marinated chicken breast. I use a Greek marinade with many of the same herbs and spices.


  • 1 med or 2 small Zuccini Squash; cubed

  • 1 med sweet onion; cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1/2 bunch of chopped parsley
  • 1 6 oz jar of chopped Kalamata olives
  • 1 8oz package of feta cheese (crumble over the salad)
  • 1 clove garlic; minced
  • 6 swiss chard leaves (chiffonade and then cut into 1-2 inches in length)
  • 1 can of artichoke hearts (optional)


  • 1/2 t sea salt
  • 1/2 t black pepper
  • 1 t ground cumin
  • 1 t oregano dried
  • 1/2 C red wine vinegar
  • 1/2-2/3 C olive oil

Directions: Mix everything down to the swiss chard into a bowl and toss well. Make dressing by mixing all the spices with the oil and vinegar. whisk well or use an emulsifying mixer. Pour over the salad and mix well. Add more salt and pepper to taste. Serve

Kale Chips

You can get super creative with this recipe and add lots of fun spice and flavor. I also like to put in about a T. of apple cider vinegar, but the recipe below is a great starter. Have fun and love your kale.

2 tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt, for sprinkling


Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.

Remove the ribs from the kale and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Lay on a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil and salt. Bake until crisp, turning the leaves halfway through, about 20 minutes. Serve as finger food.
