Mediterranean Salad

All Main Coures


Sometimes all you need is the perfect salad to complete the meal.

For me, no meal is complete without a BAS (Big Ass Salad)!  and while usually I am known to just throw together whatever is in the fridge, sometimes there is a method to the madness.

Below is the recipe for my classic Mediterranean inspired salad, and while this salad can hold it's own, it goes perfectly alongside my Cauliflower Felafels and Spicy Persian Burgers.

I also love it with some grilled chicken or canned tuna thrown in for a fuss-free meal.

For me, salad is all about texture.  You need the crunchy, the creamy, and juicy.  I hope you enjoy this salad as much as I do.
