THE RECIPES
Greek Inspired Sheet Pan Nachos

Piled high with shredded chicken, chickpeas, tomatoes and a creamy and tangy tzatziki style dip, we guarantee you won't be able to stop eating these tasty nachos! Cook all three chicken breasts called for in the ingredient list so you can use the leftovers tomorrow. 
 

Feedfeed Tip If you are short on time, use a bag of store-bought pita chips as the base for these nachos.
Greek Style Pasta Salad by @dianemorrisey

You can't go wrong with a pasta salad this time of year and this Greek-inspired version is packed with fresh cherry tomatoes, feta, cucumbers and olives.  Use the leftover chicken from last night for a boost of protein.

Feedfeed Tip When making pasta salad, we like to toss the warm pasta with the dressing so it has a chance to soak up all the flavor. 
 
 
 
Salmon Noodle Stir Fry by @aichabouhlou

Skip the takeout and make these easy noodles at home instead. If you prefer, you could swap the salmon for 1 lb of raw, cleaned shrimp. Just cut down on the cooking time by a few minutes.

Feedfeed Tip Avoid soggy soba by cooking the noodles for 1 minute less than the package suggests and rinsing them with cool water after draining. Toss the cooked noodles with a drizzle of sesame oil to prevent them from sticking together.
