BBQ, Blog 0 comments

Grilling outdoors has the power of transforming a meal into an exciting activity. Make your stay at the La Casa in the Okanagan even better by trying this savoury chicken souvlaki salad.

This summer you deserve a relaxing healthy meal with tasty chicken skewers accompanied by a fresh salad, and no better way than having it with some friends and family in the Okanagan. Take the day to feel good about your eating habits.

Make it a full Greek meal by serving in or alongside grilled Greek-style pitas and try with cubed pork tenderloin instead of chicken if you like.
