This vegetarian red summer salad is all about putting together a delicious and healthy salad in a matter of minutes. It’s simple, it’s fresh, super healthy and ready in 5 minutes.
I won’t get into the “secrets” of making the best salad ever, because this writing isn’t about that. I simply want to share with you an easy summer salad recipe made with tomatoes, onions, cucumber, bell pepper, carrots, kalamata olives, boiled eggs and a few “surprise” ingredients like walnuts, pineapple and raisins. You won’t need anything else, not even a salad dressing.
I love this recipe because it’s super simple to put together and comes packed with fresh vegetables, healthy fats and quality proteins, plus all the micronutrients they bring to the table. Works great as grab and go lunch, for all those busy days in the city.
Talking about simplicity, I’ve put together this recipe with the fresh ingredients that I’ve got from my local supermarket in Kristiansand, Norway. I bought all the fresh ingredients (except for the eggs) from my local Meny Food Store; everything was already nicely pre-cut, including the pineapple and the olives. As for the eggs, the plate and the wooden fork, they all came from my local IKEA Restaurant.
Pro Tip: Want to make this vegan? No worries, just skip the boiled eggs and include more walnuts and kalamata olives.As always, go fresh, go local and go organic!
Enjoy this red summer salad with someone you love! … And don’t forget to spread the love by sharing this post!
