5 Minute Greek Salad

greek salad

Flavorful, low-calorie salads don’t have to be fancy or time-consuming.  This Greek salad takes less than 5 minutes to prepare, and thanks to fresh summer veggies, it tastes fantastic without a lot of fuss.  It’s this type of veggie-heavy lunch or snack that will send us down the path of losing weight for good!



1 Persian cucumber (the tiny kind)

1 small yellow, red, or orange bell pepper

A few thin slices of onion, red onion, or green onion

1 medium tomato

2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp balsamic vinegar

Salt & pepper

Roughly chop all the veggies, then drizzle with the oil and vinegar and sprinkle with salt & pepper.  Toss to coat, then serve.  Note: letting this salad marinate in the fridge makes it even more flavorful, so feel free to make bigger batches of it to last a few days in the fridge.  You could also add some chopped olives (2 Tbsp), crumbled feta (2 Tbsp), and/or chopped chicken breast (1/2 cup) to make this salad more of a substantial meal.
