This recipe is special to me because it embodies everything I represent in a bowl: Using only real whole foods and clean ingredients, following Mediterranean diet principles, incorporating as many vegetables and herbs as I can, and introducing people to unfamiliar flavors in familiar ways while doing so with love.

During the summer months here in Arizona, I keep it light & simple in the kitchen. I reserve the cooking for the grill & prefer to “assemble” and prep more than boil & roast.

I make it in a large batch and keep in the fridge for the week. This is an easy one to modify to your liking too!

Make extra salad for leftovers the next day (it’s delicious!). If you want a vegetarian option, leave off the shrimp and top with white […]
