This salad skips the leaves and is made up of add-ins, but not the “guilty” kind. It combines zucchini, carrot and cabbage with sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese and olives to create a simple and healthy salad that doesn’t need the leaves to keep you slim and full. Enjoy!

I can’t think of a better accompaniment to feta cheese than another Mediterranean mainstay: eggplant. For this recipe, I roast eggplant and top it with sliced sheep’s milk feta cheese. The softness and earthiness of the eggplant is contrasted by the saltiness and tougher texture of the cheese. Enjoy!

My two go-to salads are 1-2-3-ready and neutral enough to have on a daily basis, but don’t let their simplicity fool you–they pack a flavor punch! The first salad I made yesterday, and it lets the green leaves do the talking. It’s abundant and a wonderful complement to a denser meal. Lemon and Scallion Green [...]
