There’s something about this delicious leftovers salad that just speaks to the soul. Colorful, fresh, so customizable, and loaded with quality ingredients. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado (skin and seed removed)
  • 2 big cups green peas ( lightly boiled)
  • 2 hard boiled eggs (free range, organic)
  • 10-15 olives of your choice (I used black olives from Greece)
  • 1-2 jalapeño
  • 100 g Feta cheese
  • pinch of Himalayan salt

Instructions

  • Cook the green peas and boil the eggs first. It’s ok to cook them in advance, even the day before.
  • Prepare all the veggies, take out the olives from the fridge and cut the cheese as needed. Don’t forget to peel and slice the eggs.
  • Now it’s time to prepare the salad ... Add everything into your favorite plates and eat as is.
  • That was it! Super simple, right?!

Notes

There are 2 main types of white cheese: feta cheese and the least known type which goes under the name of “plain white cheese”. Depending on the origin, some white cheese could have more salt than others. So before adding salt to this meal, make sure to test your white cheese for the salt content. Also, note that white cheese made from sheep’s milk is usually more salty compared to feta cheese (which is made of cow and goat milk).
Be creative with the ingredients and feel free to use whatever leftovers you have available. If you like using a salad dressing, keep it sugar-free, gluten-free, soy-free and free of refined seed oils.
