[Recipe] Summer Salad

The other day I was craving olives. Now mind you, I like olives but they aren’t something I normally eat, or for that matter crave. If it’s on pizza then I won’t complain however if given the choice I never request them as a topping. After purchasing a pound and snacking on a couple I wanted to somehow incorporate the olives into a meal. That’s when I came up with the perfect summer salad recipe. Very Mediterranean inspired; it’s refreshing, healthy and finger licking good!

What you Need:

  • 2 Zucchinis
  • 2 Tomatoes, chopped
  • 1lb Seedless Olives, chopped
  • ½ Onion, chopped
  • 1 cup crumbled Feta cheese
  • Handful cilantro, chopped

Dressing:

  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 1 Lemon, juiced and zested
  • 1 ½ tablespoons of Honey Mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

In a small bowl, zest and juice the lemon. Grate garlic and add honey mustard and honey. Whisk in olive oil and add salt and pepper to taste. Set dressing aside.

Meanwhile, slice the zucchini long ways into halves then again into fourths. Place on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Once they have cooled, chop up.

In a medium salad bowl add chopped tomatoes, onions, zucchinis, olives, feta and cilantro. Drizzle with reserved dressing and mix. Plate and serve! Yum yum in the tum tum!
