Standard

img_0848

Getting back on the health kick, I keep looking for recipes that offer lots of veggies (without spending too much time extra prepping them!).

Ingredients:

1 lb. ground beef, turkey, chicken, or bison

1 t. lemon zest

2 T. lemon juice

1/4 c. non fat greek yogurt

1 T. water

1 T. chopped fresh chives

Arugula

Sliced tomatoes

Sliced avocados

1/4 chopped red onion

2 minced garlic cloves

Directions:

Combine meat, red onions and garlic. Season with some salt and pepper. Form the meat into about 12-15 meat balls.

Cook them in a pan until done.

In the meantime, mix together the yogurt, water, chives and lemon zest in a small bowl. Set aside.

In another bowl, mix together 3 T. olive oil, lemon juice, and some salt and pepper.

In a large salad bowl, place the arugula, tomatoes and avocados. Mix with the olive oil mixture. Top with the meatballs and drizzle the yogurt sauce on top.
