Lara’s Colorful Greek Salad

My Type of Greek Salad

Try to choose different kinds of colorful vegetables, in order to get a variety of phytochemicals for better gut and immune health.

Increasing fibers intake helps to achieve tighter glycemic control for patients with diabetes, pre-diabetes, impaired glucose tolerance, and insulin resistance.

So here I have:

  • 2/3 a cup of shredded red cabbage.
  • 2 small green onions.
  • 4 small cucumbers.
  • 1/2 a cup of heirloom tomatoes.
  • 1 medium juicy vine-ripened tomato.
  • 1/2 of yellow pepper.
  • 1/4 of red pepper
  • 1/4 of orange pepper.
  • 2-3 small radishes.
  • Fresh mint leaves (the tastiest part!)
  • 2.5 oz of Greek Feta cheese.

I get the authentic Greek feta cheese, made mainly from sheep’s milk (not as crumply and delicious).

As for the dressing:

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin Sicilian olive oil
  • 2.5 freshly squeezed lemon.
  • A sprinkle of Himalayan salt.

The total macronutrient composition in the salad would be 525 Kcals, 22 grams of protein, and 13 grams of fibers.

Here you go, I hope this was delicious!

Bon appétit et Bonne santé
