This is a simple Mediterranean inspired salad recipe you can customize to fit your taste buds.
It is quick & easy to make & you can save it for leftovers all week. The most time consuming part is chopping all the veggies.
This salad is great as a side dish, paired with chicken or as a snack with hummus & crackers.
I organized the ingredients into 3 sections, so you can customize it to your preferences: the base, the pickled stuff & additional vegatables. If you love pickled veggies as much as I do, add more of those. If you prefer different vegatables, choose the ones you enjoy.
With a salad like this, I try to pick different vegatable in order to add an assortment of colors.
This recipe yields about 4-5 cups - depending on how many veggies you add.
- Kale, chopped
- 1 english cucumber, chopped
- Grape tomatoes, halved or quartered
- I can of garbanzo beans, drained
The pickled stuff:
- Parsley, chopped
- Orange Bell pepper, chopped
- Radish, chopped
- Red Onion, chopped
For the dressing:
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 3-4 tablespoons of oil (olive, avocado, etc)
- 1-2 teaspoons of Apple Cider vinegar (depending on how vinegar-y you like it)
- Season to your taste (I like oregano or italian seasoning blends)
1. Chop your veggies.
2. Massage your leafy greens with a little bit of olive oil & salt.
3. Create the dressing.
4. Mix everything together.
