The Food Factor: Greek Island Salad
Video by Jonathan Parrish
I don’t like to heat up the kitchen during the hot summer months, and salads are a great option for a cool meal.
I really enjoy eating Mediterranean style food and this tasty, protein-filled salad with Greek seasoning is perfect for me.
Greek Island Salad
3 tablespoons vinegar
¼ cup olive oil
1 tablespoon Greek seasoning
2 - 16-oz. cans white beans, drained
1 - 15-oz. can quartered artichoke hearts, drained
1 jar roasted red peppers, drained and diced
1 cucumber, diced
½ pint cherry tomatoes, sliced
½ red onion, diced
- Combine vinegar, oil, and seasoning in large bowl.
- Add beans, artichokes, peppers, cucumber, tomatoes, and onion to bowl and stir.
- Chill and serve.
