Anodyne's Mediterranean Salad

Hi friends! Today’s Anodyne recipe is simple and deeeeee-licious! The Mediterranean Salad can be used as a light meal or as a side dish when entertaining. 

Although I included the recipe, I recommend getting creative on your own. I am a firm believer in using recipes as a base, but always adding a bit of your own touch! For example, if you have some fresh herbs in the backyard or extra onion in the refrigerator, throw it in. Adding your own flare and experimenting makes at-home meals that much more exciting.

If you’d like to make this salad more of a meal, try adding quinoa, mini potatoes, or grilled chicken. I can’t wait to hear what you think! 😊
