This appetizer can also be used on a bed of lettuce for a tempting, yet very quick to make, salad!
It will also add pizzazz to your burger!
Tomatoes, those ever versatile fruit disguised as a vegetable, take on so many roles. We use them freshly sliced on burgers, in small pieces in our salad, as a base for stews and chili and in salsas, sauces, and so many other places. More than just a pretty food, tomatoes are packed full of vitamins and minerals, and provide these health benefits.
Cucumbers are another very popular vegetable, often eaten raw and included in many juices. They are a good source of both B and C vitamins and tout many health benefits.
Feta Cheese is often found dressing up fancy buffet dishes, but it is also quite comfortable at home in salads, soups, and salsas. Made from sheep or goat milk, it is quite similar to the Indian Paneer Cheese, and boasts a strong nutrient panel including calcium and several vitamins.
No Feta Cheese? Substitute a quality mozzarella cheese curd!
When we combine these 3 great foods with just a little olive oil, cilantro, and salt and pepper, the result is a delicious appetizer that we can proudly serve to family and guests.
Want to dress it up a bit more?
Add some sliced black olives, a little chopped onion, or perhaps some soy based bacon bits.
Although it is wonderful in its natural state, this dip is a great base for many favorites. Experiment with your own choices!
