Chicken Shawarma Salad

I love shawarma, but doing the whole low carb thing isn’t really conducive to piling everything in delicious pitas smothered in garlic sauce.  But it works well over a salad!  I based this on a couple of different recipes I found (Cooking Light was where I got the base marinade), marinated it overnight, and had it with a lemon-sumac dressing.  I’m not usually very good about salads for dinner, but this was pretty tasty, and fairly low-maintenance as well.  We just used a bag of salad and tossed some tomatoes, cucumbers, and chickpeas in it as well.





Orzo Salad

This is one of my favorite side dishes, and I especially like it with anything Mediterranean.  I made this to go with lemon-oregano grilled lamb chops for dinner, and probably could have hoovered the entire thing myself.  This is good warm or cold, so leftovers are very useful.  This could also be a main dish for a vegetarian night if you paired with a salad, etc.
