Easy Greek salad made with simple, fresh and fuss-free ingredients. This salad will be great for hot, summer days, perfect for light lunch or dinner!
Welcome to the new post friends!
Today, I have a couple of exciting things to share with you. Light and delicious Greek salad, plus a new and exciting way to shop for your groceries online that could revolutionise the way you do it!
Weekly shopping struggle is real...
When it comes to my regular food shopping, I must admit, it's not the highlight of my week. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy the occasional stroll around the supermarket, but I also find them overcrowded and manic at times.
With my diet being based mainly around vegetarian and vegan cuisine, sometimes, going to the shop to do weekly groceries can be a bit time consuming. I have to check every label and read the list of the ingredients for almost every product that I buy. In the past, I often bought something thinking it's vegetarian or vegan, only to discover later that it is not. The frustration and disappointment which I can only blame myself for (because I was rushing through it and couldn't be bothered to read the label). Grrr!
Online shopping made easy with Tesco
Gradually, I've been growing my appreciation for online shopping, because it makes things so much easier and quicker. I no longer need to spend time between supermarket aisles, studying the labels. I can do it quickly and effortlessly, via Tesco's website or their groceries app on my phone, at the comfort of my own home or office. Their latest feature, the dietary and lifestyle filters tool made the whole process even quicker and better!
This new tool allows you to complete your online shop on the website or via the app, whilst being able to filter your product search into categories, such as vegetarian, vegan, paleo, no-gluten and many more! If you have any special dietary requirements, or simply want to explore and try new trends or cuisines, this tool should be definitely on your radar!
It's great to see how Tesco have cleverly tailored online shopping experience to suit so many different lifestyles and needs, and still kept the whole thing really easy and quick to use. As much as we don't want to admit it, we do live in times when our lifestyle and occupations are more and more demanding, leaving us less precious time for simple pleasures, not to mention time to pay attention to what we eat. By using their app along with filters, a whole food shopping experience has become smooth and super quick, it can literally be done in minutes, rather than my usual couple of hours, and I no longer fear that I will find an unwanted ingredient in one of the products!
Easy Greek salad- perfect for the hot summer day!
This classic salad is one of the simplest, yet one of the most popular salads in our household. It requires only 7 ingredients and literally almost no effort to prepare. Fresh tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and olives, along with some feta cheese (can be swapped for vegan equivalent), oregano and olive oil. Perfect light lunch or dinner, it also makes great side to any meal. It can also be easily customised, I often add some crunchy apples or watermelon to it, cooked pasta can also be a great addition!
Thanks for reading today's post, I hope you've enjoyed it. As always, it would be great to hear from you, so don't be shy and leave me a comment below!
Until next time!
