Mediterranean Salad

By using bright colors and different textures in food we can create dishes that are not only appealing to the eye, but to our taste buds too!  This is a delicious change from the tossed salad, yet every bit as easy to prepare.  The ingredients are available at most markets.  

Eating Pretty, as I call it, helps me enjoy foods that are in my healthy lifestyle.

This salad included:
Small Heirloom Tomatoes....these have beautiful colors!
Sliced Persian Cucumbers.....small delicate cucumbers
Small fresh Mozzarella balls, drain well and quarter
Blended with a handful of micro-greens, crunchy, tender and wonderful flavor.

1/4 Cup Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 Cup Red Wine Vinegar
1/2 fresh squeezed Lemon
Salt and Pepper to taste
Use only 1/2 of the dressing on the salad.  (keeps well in the fridge) Toss gently and serve.
