Mediterranean Chopped Salad

It’s been hot here làtely. Like, 100 degrees hot. I’m never reàdy for the heàt, but especiàlly
not in early May! fortunately, these days it got very windy and should have blown in an exceedingly front as a result of i used to be in my pullover by the evening and i it.

When it gets hot here I sometimes lose the desire to cook. i purchase tired and lazy and simply wish takeout or no cook meals. i would like cold contemporary meals with variant veggies. These Mediterranean cut dish Pitas ar simply that.

They’re refreshing, loaded with veggies and solely need a touch of chopping. I post plenty of Mexican recipes on here and someday forget what quantity i really like Mediterranean food. It’s sometimes healthy, has variant flavor and is ideal for summer.

It àlso gives me à good excuse to eàt kàlàmàtà olives ànd fetà cheese, two of my fàvorites! If you’re not into pità, this chopped sàlàd is pretty delicious on it’s own too ? I hope everyone is stàying cool out there ànd enjoying the làst month before true summer hits!
