I got really excited when I found this recipe because it pairs some of my favourite flavours together to make one delicious, yet bold salad. Not only do you have the freshness of cucumbers and tomatoes, you also have the sharp taste of feta and olives. Top it off with some stir-fried beef and this is the perfect weekday lunch or dinner.

If you’re looking for a post-workout meal, add some chickpeas (or any other type of bean) to the salad and serve it with a slice of whole-grain bread. Also feel free to switch up the veggies to suit your mood. This dish is super versatile. ????

Hope you enjoy it!
