Why We Like It

Salads can easily be made with whatever ingredients you have on hand and a basic homemade dressing.  This greek version is quick and easy — and beets, fresh or canned, have been found to lower blood pressure and enhance performance in athletes!


Make the Salad:

  • 6 cups baby spinach leaves (or romaine, or greens of your choice)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes (cut in half)
  • 1/2 cucumber (chopped into bite size pieces)
  • 1/2 red onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1/4 cup kalamata greek olives (drained and sliced)

Add to a large bowl.

Add the Dressing:

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

Drizzle on top of the salad and toss to combine.

Finish the Salad:

  • 1 (8.25 oz) can beets (sliced, no salt added, OPTIONAL)
  • 2 Tbsp feta cheese

Add to the salad just before serving.

Serve and Enjoy!

Quick Tips

You can buy greek (or kalamata) olives already pitted — having the pits already removed is so much easier!
