Two simply delicious salad recipes

Before soup season starts, here are two salads I couldn’t get enough of this summer.

You get two kinds of people in this world – a salad eater and a non-salad eater. I like to say I’m a bit of both. I find salads can be boring, bland and just not satisfying. But if a salad is crispy, tasty and just bursting with deliciousness, then I am a salad eater through and through.

In an effort to make healthier decisions this year, I have had these two salads on heavy rotation. They are both easy to make, and I often have all of the ingredients on hand.

GREEK-ISH SALAD

what you need:

  • lettuce
  • cucumber
  • tomato
  • feta cheese cubes
  • olives

what to do:

Chop the lettuce. Peel and dice the cucumber. Chop the tomato. Combine everything in a bowl. Add the feta cheese cubes and olives. I like to chop up the olives so it mixes in.

salad dressing:

I use olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper. Sometimes I’ll just use lemon juice.

ITALIAN-ISH SALAD

what you need:

  • lettuce
  • cucumber
  • tomato
  • mozzarella cheese
  • pickled cucumbers

what to do:

Chop the lettuce. Peel and dice the cucumber. Chop the tomato. Combine everything in a bowl. Add the mozzarella cheese and the pickled cucumbers. I like to use Israeli pickled cucumbers (the Beit Hashita one’s from my local Spar) and I chop them into little cubes.

salad dressing:

I use the juice of the Israeli pickled cucumbers and a little bit of salt and pepper. You can use any brand of pickled cucumbers, they’re all generally sourish and tasty.

Which salad will you be making first?
