Chef Tip: Salad bowls can be customized by replacing peas with Wholesome Pantry™ Organic Garbanzo Beans or roasted red peppers, honey mustard vinaigrette with lemon or lite balsamic vinaigrette, feta cheese with shaved Parmesan or part-skim ricotta cheese, almonds with pistachios or hazelnuts and/or sun-dried tomatoes with cherry tomatoes.

Dietitian Tip: The great thing about recipes such as these is the customization, like our chef describes! No ingredient is set in stone, and your creativity can transform this dish into several different versions.
