Ayurvedic Greek Salad

 

This super quick to prepare, so nourishing, cooling salad is ideal for hot summer months as a main meal or smaller portions can be accompanied by daal or another dish.  Try to avoid eating too much raw food during winter as its difficult to digest.

Better still come and have an authentic greek salad at our retreat where the olive oil and olives are from our neighbours the oregano is grown wild in the mountains.  Its a taste that you will never forget.
