A Healthy Go-To-Salad Recipe

Make an Easy and Healthy Anytime Salad

Everyone has their go-to salad recipe – this is mine.

We love this salad – it is something I can just throw together in a jiffy!  I generally have the ingredients in the fridge and it pairs with fish or meat so nicely – especially anything grilled.


– Cucumbers

– Tomatoes

– Red Onion or Green Onions work too

– Feta Cheese

– You can also add Bell Peppers if you like

Make a Healthy Salad in a Jiffy


– Honey

– Extra Light Olive Oil

– Balsamic Vinegar


– Peal cucumbers and slice into half-moons, cut tomatoes into bite sized pieces, slice a few   circles of onion then cut into fourths and crumble feta over the top.  You can also cut bell peppers into bite sized pieces and add in as well.

Dressing:  Use a jar with a screw on lid – I like a mason or jam jar.  Pour 2 parts of extra light olive oil and 1 part balsamic vinegar then add a squirt of honey.  Shake up.

Drizzle the dressing over the top of the salad and mix together with a serving spoon.

I started using honey instead of white sugar in my dressings and it works just as well – so whatever you have on hand is great.  The sweetness just cuts the bitterness of the vinegar.

Happy cooking,
