Hi all, I wanted to add this. Anything with chicken, salad and a creamy sauce is a-ok with me.
this is good. I could probably cut down the fat content a bit but I don’t want to yet, this is too yummy. The recipe is this: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/chicken-shawarma-10000001816368/
Basically what we have here is some chicken marinated in a bit of olive oil, lemon juice and seasonings, placed on a salad of green leaf lettuce, baby spinach, cucumber, tomato and fat-free feta cheese. I drizzle a tiny bit of good seasonings salad dressing, made with apple cider vinegar and a bit of olive oil.
That little plop of creamy goodness on top is Tahini sauce!! OMG I love it. I make mine with fat-free Greek yoghurt, 2 cloves of finely minced garlic, a good tablespoon or two of lemon juice and two heaping spoonfulls of Tahini paste, which is a paste made of sesame seeds. Don’t let the fat content throw you - Tahini paste if full of goodness. Not only does it pack calcium, magnesium and Vitamin B, but most of the fat is Omega 3 and Omega 6, which is brain food.
You can find Tahini paste in most any grocery – in mine, it’s in the International aisle and called Tahene, and is imported from Israel. It’s not cheap but seems to last for a long while. If cultures that are thousands of years old like Tahini, it’s good enough for me.
I like to stir it all up and cram as much as I can into that little half a whole-wheat pita. What’s not to love?
This looks delicious! Thanks for sharing!!
