MEDITERRANEAN CHOPPED SALAD
With just a few simple ingredients
you can at any farmers market or farm stand,
this meal comes together in less than 10 minutes with
no need to turn on your stove, oven, or grill!
Light, but filling, it's the perfect way to
end these long, hot summer days!
Feel free to mix in your favorite protein, small pasta, or grain for a heartier meal or adjust the ratios to your liking! Now go gather up that perfect farmers market produce and your favorite hummus (we love Utah's Own member Laziz Kitchen's Hummus for this - add in a little of their Toum Garlic Spread or Muhammara for an extra layer of flavor!)
