Recipe: Bathing Suit-Friendly Greek Salad

Happy official first day of summer!  I always crave Greek Salads during this time of year a) because it's cool and refreshing and b) it's easy on the calories and bathing suit-friendly!  I added some mint and flat-leaf parsley to brighten up the flavors! Enjoy!

Bathing Suit-Friendly Greek Salad
1 cup Organic mini cherry tomatoes (sliced in halves)
1 cup cucumber (diced)
1/2 cup red onion (sliced thick or to your liking)
2 tbsps Fat Free Feta
2 tbsps Extra Virgin Olive Oil (use the good kind)
chopped mint leaves (to taste)
chopped flat leaf parsley (to taste)
Squeeze half a lemon
Salt and pepper to tast

Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl.  Sprinkle feta on top and serve.  *Make a big batch early in the week and portion out for a healthy lunch all week long.  Serve with 1/2 a whole wheat pita.
