Greek Salad Recipe

Summer Salad

This is a very easy salad to put together on a warm summers evening or when you just don’t have a lot of time to stand in the kitchen for too long. Tomatoes are a great source of antioxidants, which some scientists believe have a role in preventing some types of cancer.  In addition tomatoes also contain lots of potassium and vitamins C, B-complex and A, which make them great as a snack or  you can add them to a salad (see recipe below).

The olives in this salad contain good amounts of heart healthy unsaturated fats, which can reduce your risk of heart disease.
