Summery, High Fibre Greek Salad
Greek salad is one of the nicest, most refreshing summer salads. Cucumbers are cooling and hydrating, cherry tomatoes are sweet and refreshing, feta cheese is... delicious! And add some high fibre brown rice and chickpeas for a complete, nutritious, vegetarian low-glycemic meal. Add some red onion, oregano, and olive oil for a super immune system...and of course for incredible flavour. And though this salad may not exactly be a traditional Greek Salad, it is no less traditional than a Greek salad made with iceberg lettuce. But they're all delicious!
