Tricolore Salad

salad with cucumber and peperoni

Today I have a delicious and easy salad recipe in store for you.

Some of you may already know.that I made the resolution to eat vegetables or fruits five times a day.I called it the Rules of 5!
Since then I`m obsessing about new recipes and ideas how to implement this change in my life.And I have to admit,this is a huge and difficult step for me,although I like fruits and veggies,they actually weren`t that present on my table.

The Tricolore Salad turned out to be a really good friend,supporting me with my resolution.I already made this salad three times and I still love it!
Oh and I made it on Christmas dinner with my friends!

What you need (3-4 servings):
  • 1 yellow peperoni
  • 1 red peperoni
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 10 to 15 tablespoons lemon juice depending on how thick and sour you like the dressing
  • a lot of different spices and herbs,I used grounded garlic,grounded onions,chives,salad herbal mix,basil,Fleur de Sel,sea salt,pepper and lemon pepper.

Cut the pepperoni in stripes and the cucumber in rings.Then cut the peperoni stripes in even smaller pieces and halve the cucumber rings.
That`s about it for the salad,so you see it`s pretty much done quickly!

Here`s how I made the salad dressing for the Tricolore Salad,which is by the way called like that,because of it`s colours.And as you may know,it is very important to eat different colored food.
Add plain yogurt,lemon juice and all your spices and herbs in a little gravy boat.Mix well and then pour gently over your salad.
And done!
