Mediterranean Salad

Surprisingly, I don’t only live off of sugar (as many of my posts would lead you to believe). For a healthy side salad to go with our grilled skirt steak, I whipped up this easy salad with cucumbers, red bell peppers, garbanzo beans and feta cheese tossed in extra virgin olive oil. It’s cool and refreshing—perfect for summer days. It will definitely be my go-to dish to bring to barbecues in the hot months ahead.
