Lebanese Chicken Salad

Radishes are a great source of potassium and vitamin C, important for blood pressure regulation and boosting the immune system. Rich in lycopene (an important phytonutrient), the tomatoes add a boost of antioxidants to this quick, simple protein and fiber packed recipe!

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 tbsp. vinegar (cider or balsamic)
