The other day, the hubby discovered that he has high blood pressure.  Now, we have even more reason to eat healthy.  This week has been pretty good so far.  Lots of salads 🙂  I love salad, and fortunately he does too (now if we could just convince my 3 year old.)  I've been trying to fix up a variety of salad recipes, and right now this Mediterranean salad is my go to. 

Mediterranean Salad Ingredients

I can't get enough marinated artichoke hearts and Kalamata olives. They are the main reason why I named this Mediterranean salad.  Well that and the feta cheese

Since we have been eating so many salads, I keep my fridge stocked with salad ingredients. I have been buying pre-packaged and pre-washed mixed greens.  This makes all of the salad prep quick and easy.  To make this Mediterranean salad recipe, after I throw some mixed greens on our plates, I simply add sliced grape tomatoes and cucumber, followed by the artichoke hearts and olives straight out of their jars.  Then I top that off with a crumble of feta cheese.  Yum!!! This is one of the easiest salad recipes ever.

The dressing is also super simple.  I like to use the oil from the marinated artichoke hearts, a drizzle of white wine vinegar and a squeeze of lemon.  Lastly, comes some salt and pepper. That's it!

I love these flavors together.  The tanginess of the feta cheese with the briny flavor from the olives and artichokes are just so delicious.

Hopefully, with salad recipes like this, we can get my hubby's blood pressure back down in no time.  But in addition to our own enjoyment, this is one of my best salad recipes for entertaining guests too.  It's so easy to throw together and almost everyone likes it.

Salad Prep Essentials

There are only a few kitchen tools you really need if you are going to be making salad.  One would be a really good cutting board like this one.  You also want nice sharp knives like these.  If you are not using pre-washed greens you may also want to grab a salad spinner like this one

  1. I have never made a Mediterranean Salad ~ yours looks so fresh and delicious. You have inspired me to make one myself! Thanks for sharing at Project Inspire{d} ~ pinned!

  2. Jordan,
    What a delicious salad! I love olives (and so do my daughters) and my husband love artichoke hearts – perfect! My 6 and 2 year old love salads. That wasn't always the case, but if the kids help make the salad, there's a really good chance they'll be willing to try it. My 6 year old cuts all the vegetables for our salads, and my 2 year old "helps" me wash everything and sprinkle nuts, cheese, or whatever toppings we put on the salad. Thanks for sharing such a delicious salad!
