Mediterranean Salad

We mixed together this Mediterranean Salad and served it with the pita chips and bread on a board. But you can also use a platter or tray.

We all know that eating the Mediterranean way (not really a diet, but a way), is good for us! So today we took simple ingredients with tomatoes and cucumbers, to create a simple board or tray: A Tomato Cucumber Herb Salad.

Eating the same old chicken, rice, and salad gets old, so why not change it up with good flavors, and make a salad board? You can add chicken to this Tomato Cucumber Herb Salad if you’re looking for more protein. Or, make a board like this Chicken Farro Salad Board!

Anything with herbs, veggies, and chickpeas, topped by a tahini sauce—is pure deliciousness!
