Minty Mediterranean Salad

This was made popular by a celebrity ( shes very “Friend-ly). However I would eat it without her endorsement because it’s pretty tasty and full of healthy ingredients.

Eating a Mediterranean style diet is highly recommended as one of the healthiest eating plans by American nutrition experts. It's also recognized by the World Health Organization as a healthy-eating pattern.  It consists of mostly plant-based foods such as fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and legumes.  The Mediterranean diet can reduce the risk of a host of diseases, from cancer to diabetes. The anti-inflammatory benefits of these ingredients can also keep your immune system strong and prevent colds and other illnesses.
