While salad may be the infamous diet food, I’m not a fan of plain vegetables. Since I dislike raw tomatos and cucumbers (notorious salad staples) it’s hard for me to stick with what is normally offered in terms of this veggie plate. That’s why I love Greek salad – the added feta cheese and olives tickles my taste buds and take this dish who a whole new level. I’ve come up with my own version that’s easy to make, requires no cooking (except to quickly roast the almonds) and tastes ahhhhmazing. I sometimes make it in the morning and pack it to eat between classes. It’s much lower calorie than the salads you can get on campus/ in restaurants and it stays fresh for a long time.

Step 3) Slice olives and place on bed of lettuce.
Step 4) Toss in feta cheese, top with more italian seasoning.
Step 5) Add almonds and enjoy!
