I recently adapted a salad recipe from a Mediterranean Diet Cookbook called the “Mediterranean Detox Salad.” The name does not sound appetizing to me, but it turned out to be delicious. Here’s what I ended up with…
WHAT YOU NEED:
- 1 English Cucumber
- 2 Tbs. lemon juice
- 2 Tbs. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 can artichoke hears (packed in water), sliced
- 6 cups Romaine lettuce
- 1/2 c. feta cheese, crumbled
- 6 cherry tomatoes
- Black pepper, to taste
- 1/2 tsp. dillweed
- Garlic powder, to taste
WHAT YOU DO:
Slice cucumber in half lengthwise and then crosswise into 1/4-inch thick slices.
Set aside half of the cucumber slices.
With a food processor, process the other half of the cucumber, plus 2 Tbsp. lemon juice.
Add EVOO, dillweed, garlic powder, and pepper to processor and pulse.
In a bowl, put artichoke hearts, Romaine lettuce, feta, and cucumber slices. Mix salad and toss with dressing. Top with tomatoes and a sprinkle of dillweed.
