More Football! Greek Summer Salad

More World Cup fever going on in our house! Well, when it comes to food anyway! We have Greece playing tonight so what better than a beautiful fresh, fragrant summer Greek salad?

I’m serving this with delicious savoury zucchini muffins. I’ll post the recipe for those tomorrow. 

 

By the way,  while I’m still working up the courage to do videos I’m just going to post pictures of me doing my biz around the kitchen instead. That’s way scary enough for the time being!

This dish is bursting with vitamins, especially vitamin A and C,  fantastic skin repairers and free radical fighters! Free radicals destroy your collagen. That’s not good. They also destroy your other cells too, which can cause disease and illness. This is why a diet brimming with raw and cooked fruits and vegetables is so paramount to health. They help you regenerate and rebuild healthy cells.

 

Greek Salad:

Juice of 3 lemons & 1 lime

Genrous drizzle of good quality extra virgin olive oil

Plenty of good quality sea or rock salt, I use pink Himalayan

2 cups cherry tomatoes, chopped

2 cups cucumber,  chopped

1.5 large red peppers and 1 yellow pepper

1 red onion, thinly sliced

1/2 cup olives, roughly chopped

2 cans canelloni beans 

1.5 tbsp dried mixed herbs

Black pepper
