I think we all know how important presentation is when serving food. If it wasn't for that, no one would care about reading food blogs or sharing food photos. Just looking at food that is pleasing to the eye makes you want to eat it.
So when you try to make healthy and nutritious food exciting for others, making it look appetizing can make all the difference.
The first time I tried it out, I just did tomato and feta but it needed a little extra crunch to offset the soft textures of the avocado and tomato. The cucumber did just the trick!
Plus, an easy vinaigrette made with red wine vinegar and a little dijon bring some acidity and brightness that enhances all the flavors of these fresh ingredients.
It would be perfect served with some chicken breast or baked fish or ever with some chickpeas for a vegetarian meal.
Let's get to it!
1/2 pack of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1/4 cup feta cheese
1 small cucumber, sliced and quartered
1/8 tsp salt and ground black pepper
Red Wine Vinaigrette
1&1/2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp dijon mustard
1/8 tsp dry oregano
1 tsp crumbled feta
1/4 tsp honey or sugar
1. Slice the avocado in half and remove the pit. Scoop the avocado halves with large spoon so that they keep their shape. Cut into quarters, so you have 4 slices total. Drizzle lightly with the vinegar which will help prevent the avocados from turning brown.
2. Whisk ingredients of vinaigrette to make dressing and set aside.
3. In small bowl, combine tomato, feta and cucumbers. Season with salt and pepper. Toss with dressing.
4. Serve large spoonful of salad over sliced avocado.
You can add any other veggies you like, including red onions, fresh herbs or bell peppers.
Spruce it up with your favorite salad dressing or switch up the cheese.
It's a simple base that can be a versatile, fun way to enhance your next meal!
However you do it, make it how you love it!
Hope you enjoy!
Lots of LOVE,
