Enjoy this Easy Mediterranean Chopped Salad made with red onions, black olives, lettuces, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese and light lemon dressing!
In one week my husband, Thomas and I are going to be in UK for two weeks. We’re so excited for our vacation. We can’t wait to visit popular attractions like Tower of London, Windsor Castle, Shakespeare’s Globe, the Thames River Cruise and much more. We’re also going to Ireland and Scotland. I’ve always wanted to go there and finally this is the time! I’m absolutely sure we’re going have a great time!
I know Thomas is only 16 months and for so many people he’s so young for international travel. But we’ve been traveling outside of Canada with him since he was 4 months old. We went to Brazil, then Argentina, Uruguay and also USA. So, he’s very used to planes and long trips and lucky me he normally behaves very well 🙏.
And since I’m going to be on vacation for 2 weeks I’ve been cooking a lot because I won’t stop posting healthy recipes for you, my friends. If you follow me on Instagram you should watch some sneak peek of the upcoming recipes. I’m always posting little videos of what I’m making in my kitchen. So, don’t forget to check them out 😉
One of the recipes I posted on my Instagram stories was this Easy Chopped Mediterranean Salad. Isn’t that GORGEOUS?! This is my husband’s favorite salad in the world. He loves the combo of feta, red onions, black olives and cucumber.
I think it’s difficult to find someone who doesn’t like this Mediterranean flavors, right? It’s very easy to make. You just have to chop all the ingredients and make the dressing, which is very fresh and brings even more flavor to this Easy Mediterranean Salad. This is the perfect time of the year to make this salad with some type of protein like salmon, chicken and even beef.
