Greek Salad

Greek salad is a classic we never get sick of.

It’s the perfect combination of textures and flavors, with crunchy greens and cucumbers, salty olives and feta… it all just mixes together perfectly.

And hey, the Greeks know a little something about a good meal. The Mediterranean Diet is considered one of the healthiest styles of eating around, from the ingredients in fresh dishes like this one, to the way in which food is enjoyed.

In other words, a Greek salad is best enjoyed mindfully, outside, with friends and a glass of crisp white wine.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Olives are a great source of healthy fats and red onions contain vitamins and antioxidants. The tangy feta provides protein and calcium, and the cucumbers will fill you up with their high water content. To make it a full meal, throw in some grilled chicken or chickpeas, or top it with a piece of grilled fish.
