Mediterranean Salad Parfait December 2, 2011

Jamie says: I had just finished reading the book Traveling with Pomegranates by Sue Monk Kidd and Ann Kidd Taylor. I haven’t had the chance to read many books for fun in a long time. It was a wonderful story told by a mother and a daughter through their travels about their relationship with each other and with themselves.

The mother and daughter traveled to Greece, a country I would love to visit one day. As I read about some of the Greek dishes they ate, it inspired me to make something a little Greek, but with the ingredients I had at hand, it turned out to be a little Italian, too…

There's fresh basil in it from Mom's garden

So I’m calling it Mediterranean!

Mediterranean Salad Parfait

It’s easy to make, looks so colorful, and tastes flavorful!

See the colors of the Italian flag?

Mediterranean Salad Parfait

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium-sized jarred roasted red peppers (Vigo Sweet Pimento Flame Roasted Peppers)
  • 2 Tbsp reduced fat feta crumbled cheese (Publix)
  • 10 black olives (Lindsay Naturals)
  • 5 leaves fresh basil (from my Mom’s garden)

Directions:

  1. Slice peppers into strips. Chop basil.
  2. Layer half of peppers, cheese, olives and basil in a small glass bowl or cup. Enjoy!

Serves: 1

  • Nutrition note: There have been a lot of research studies showing the benefits of the Mediterranean diet lately (and also in the past). This healthy eating pattern promotes heart-healthy fats, fruits, and veggies.
