Quick Greek Salad

 A plate of greek salad

Greek salad is such an easy and satisfying lunch. It can be paired with your favorite protein, but could be enjoyed all on its own. I don't eat olives too often but I found out that they have the same healthy fats that olive oil has so this salad has extra health properties! The kalamata olives are also a source of calcium. The olives, as well as tomatoes, target heart health and lower the risk of heart disease. 

Things around here have been busy, and I am now a soccer mom :). My youngest son (almost 5) has started playing soccer about a month ago. In addition to soccer, he has also started taking voice lessons. It is really cute to hear him sing.
