Cucumber tomato avocado feta salad, healthy, easy to prepare and so delicious. A brilliant recipe to enjoy all summer long, and take full advantage of the fresh vegetables that are in season. Serve it cold from the fridge and relax, you’ve done a great job keeping healthy!
Love them or hate them, salads are sheer goodness. If you struggle to get your five a day, well, have a nice bowl of salad, and you’re good to go. I admit l have days when l probably eat not that healthily, but not quite intentionally. In my daily struggle to get my naughty toddler to eat a nutritious and healthy meal, l end up eating whatever l can grab quickly, mainly a boring sandwich or whatever’s in the cupboard or fridge. I know l shouldn’t stress myself so much about what and how much she eats, but it’s pretty disheartening to put so much effort into preparing a meal she just refuses to eat. And usually for no reason whatsoever, or, probably because she decides she doesn’t like the colour or texture or whatever. Toddlers, hey!
By the way, if anyone can give me some tips about how to get a toddler to eat healthy stuff, please let me know ? I’m hopping her little sister, who’s only 3 months old, will be a less fussy pants when she reaches the toddler stage. One can only hope, right?
So, l have decided that rather than munching on a biscuit or bar of chocolate, l can just get fresh vegetables that l can quickly grab whenever l’m peckish. Or make them into a beautifully healthy salad. Cheese works perfectly here, it makes the salad more filling and adds that bit of saltiness that we need. And the great thing about it, it has the simplest and lightest 2-ingredient dressing ever, olive oil and vinegar. You really need nothing else, since you get so much flavour and freshness from the vegetables. I absolutely love the taste of properly ripen tomatoes and cucumbers, not to mention that you can buy them really cheaply when they are in season.
Another old favourite of mine are radishes. Oh, mine, when I was a child I just loved eating them by themselves with just a pinch of salt, and they were amazing. I still love eating them this way, it’s the best snack you could ever get. For some reason, I find them a bit bitter without salt, not quite sure why. So, I guess it was an obvious choice for my salad. And then there is avocado. Enough said, you really have to try this salad! Or maybe I could tempt you with a light, “meaty” Apple and baked paprika chicken salad with dijon mustard dressing?
