This is a tasty healthy salad you can have as a side or even as a light lunch!
I don’t even know if the universe has a face, but what I do know is this salad is the best. Tomatoes, cucumbers and feta cheese get together here to give your taste buds the time of their mini life.
This salad is light, delicious, super fresh and perfect as a side dish or even as the main character of your food dreams – let it shine! Like all other Beauty Bites recipes this one is extremely simple and quick, but tastes amazing and will not leave you disappointed.
HEALTH AND BEAUTY BENEFITS
In fact this salad will not leave your whole body disappointed. It’s loaded with antioxidants and fiber – these protect us from evil diseases like cancer and heart disease. It also helps to keep your skin healthy during summer. This is because the pigments in tomatoes act as sunscreen and protect us from sun damage. Though but high sun exposure is not recommended.
Feta cheese is a little like the black sheep in this salad. Except it is white. Listen, maybe it is not be the healthiest thing in the world, but I always try to look on the bright side of life. I believe anything in moderation is good for us. Even though feta cheese is high in sodium and saturated fat, it’s also a perfect source of calcium. And we need Calcium to maintain healthy bones and healthy skin.
If you need to reduce the sodium amount you can keep the cheese in water – it will get less salty, needs a few hours though.
This salad is definitely worth a try and if you’re avoiding dairy – simply leave the cheese out, there’s no harm in that. You can also add some nuts and parsley or basil. And please let me know how it goes!
