Whenever summer time comes around, the comfort food some what disappears, the Pimms comes out as does the fresh food that is always so delicious when enjoyed in the sunshine. I know for me personally, I have less of an appetite when the sun is shining. Perhaps it is due to an increase in drinking water, but whatever the reason, when I do enjoy my meals I find that I naturally gravitate towards fresh foods and healthy options. Today I wanted to share a simple salad that I love to have on those ever so rare hot english summer days…
This is not only healthy, but oh so satisfying, tasty and perfect with a glass of wine on a sunny afternoon.
- Feta cheese
- 3 Large Vine tomatoes
- 1 Cucumber
- Half a red onion
- 2- 3 tbsp of olive oil
- (Optional) Small handful of lettuce leaves
- Olives ( I personally don’t like Olives but feel free to add)
Chop up the tomatoes into large chunks, dice the cucumber and the red onion. Mix in a bowl along with the lettuce and olives Lastly add the feta cheese and drizzle with olive oil. For lunch I will have about half of this by itself, but you can also use this as a side salad to a main course to share.
Thanks for reading everyone!
