Monday again and theme for this week in Foodie Monday Bloghop group is #222MystiqueMediterranean suggested by Archana who blogs at themadscientistkitchen. I love her detailed way of writing and healthy recipes. Do check her space for some interesting recipes from around the world. She suggested recipes from Mediterranean Cuisine. After browsing a lot about Mediterranean diet and recipes came up with this salad.
The Mediterranean diet is a way of eating based on the traditional cuisine of countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea. Mediterranean diet is typically high consumption of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, nut and seeds, and olive oil. Olive oil is the primary source of added fat in the Mediterranean diet. Olive oil provides monounsaturated fat, which has been found to lower total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels. (Source)
