Tasty Tuesday: Yummy Greek Salad

A friend of mine who recently had her first baby shared this recipe with me. She is making an effort to incorporate more vegetables in her diet because she knows that eating well is important for a nursing mama. After making it, I decided to share it with other nursing mamas because it is so easy and delicious! When you have a new little baby in your family, it’s especially wonderful to have a fridge full of healthy, yummy foods such as this Greek Salad.

Ingredients:

1 and 1/2 cucumbers, peeled and chopped

1 and 1/2 large tomatoes, diced

1/3 of a red onion, diced

1 green pepper, chopped

1/4 cup of olive oil

3 Tablespoons of red wine vinegar

1 tsp of oregano (or more to taste)

salt to taste

Feta cheese (optional)

Kalamata olives (optional)

Directions:

Mix the vegetables together, add dressing and stir to coat completely. Refrigerate for about 1/2 hour before serving. You can serve it just as is or over a plate of mixed greens. I also mixed it with some leftover cold cooked quinoa for a heartier dish. ENJOY!
