10-Minute Fat Burning Recipe: Greek Pasta Salad

BY VALERIA FORTE

This is like the traditional Greek salad with a few beans sneaked into it. It is perfect for lunch or dinner.
The main idea here is to include more fiber than regular pasta salads and several other nutrient rich foods.
This makes it a VERY satisfying meal, so you do not end up eating endless amounts of carbs.
Ingredients: Serves 6. Each serving: 2 cups.
3 cups dried spiral pasta (You can use Penne or Macaroni too)
1 cup diced cucumber
1 cup diced ripe tomato
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 cup garbanzo beans (Chick peas)
3 tablespoons diced black olives
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon chopped mint leaves
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Directions:
Cook the pasta according to package directions (Make it “Al dente” –aprox. 10 min.– to lower its glycemic index).
Drain in a colander and rinse with cold water. (Allow to stand until ready to use.)
Toss the rest of the ingredients together in a large bowl.
Add the pasta.
Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Notes:
This is a healthy recipe for dinner that will help you lower your cholesterol, and blood pressure (Low in fat and sodium).
It is also good for lunch (leftover).

    Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was
    just curious if you get a lot of spam responses? If so
    how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything
    you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.
