Cucumber Salad

I love Greek food! It is probably one of my favorite cuisines and easily adaptable to gluten free cooking. My grandma recently told us (within the past few years) that we are part Greek, so let us enjoy some great food!

This cucumber and tomato salad is quick to make.

Cucumber Salad

What you need:

Cucumber diced (I used ½ very large English Cucumber)

Two Tomatoes diced (I used vine tomatoes)

Feta Cheese (1/4 block, broken up with a fork)

Garlic Vinaigrette (I got this at a local supermarket)

Salt and Pepper

Cucumber Salad

What to do:

  1. Dice cucumbers and tomatoes.
  2. Salt and pepper to your liking (Remember the feta is kind of salty, so you might not need as much salt. You can always add more, not take any away).
  3. Add feta and drizzle on some garlic vinaigrette.

Tomatoes are full of antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients. Vitamin A, C, folic acid, beta-carotene, and lycopene are just a few of the important health benefits we receive when eating tomatoes. Choline is a super important nutrient found in tomatoes. Studies have proven that choline helps reduce chronic inflammation! When you have Celiac Disease or Inflammatory Disease (or both), you struggle with chronic inflammation. It is important to make sure your diet is rich with anti-inflammatory foods and incorporating tomatoes is an easy way to help support decreasing chronic inflammation.

How are you going to incorporate tomatoes into your lifestyle?
