Good morning ya’ll!
I hope your ready for an easy delicious recipe. Lately I’ve been trying to eat delicious food all day everyday. Even my simple meals are actually things I love to eat and don’t really get tired of. I thought I continue my summer lovin’ eats yesterday, but with more wholesome homemade meals.
LunchBacalaitos (codfish fritters) con cafe. My grandma has been on a roll with all this cooking. Especially vegan/pescatarian cooking. It’s amazing how easy it is for her to cook for me now, when just a year ago, she never knew what to do. Believe it or not, I’m a pretty simple girl 😉
The other day I decided to use up some very ripe tomatoes and cucumbers that have been in my fridge for way to long, before everything went bad. I used to make simple summer salads all the time so I thought now would be the perfect time to begin once more. This recipe is actually incredibly easy (umm, 4 ingredients only) and makes for part of a fast and simple dinner. It’s also very versatile, so there is something for everyone!
- 2 tomatoes roughly chopped
- 2 cucumbers roughly chopped
- heaping half cup marinated olives (juice included)
- 2 tbs oregano
- salt and peppa if needed
Toss the tomatoes, cucumbers, and olives together in a large bowl. Add oregano and taste. Depending on how your olives were dressed you may want to add more salt and pepper. I did not, as I thought the olives gave the salad enough saltiness and tang for myself.
That’s it! So simple! I enjoyed mine with some fresh mozzerella cheese. Make it vegan with some chickpeas!! Add some quinoa for a great one bowl meal. With some veggies on the side and some meat/fish. You have an amazing full and healthy meal.
This is perfect for summer. With mostly chopping you can get away with something filling and cooling. I roasted my vegetable just because I was too lazy to mess with the grill, but I highly recommend being nothing like me and grill the hell out of your veggies. Always worth it. The quinoa was made a couple days before as we use it for the week for salads and sides.
Enjoy my loves,
P.S I was definitely on a dairy kick yesterday. I think I’m done for few days, for my tummy will thank me.
