This salad is more than just a recipe for me. For me, it is also a memory of my grandmother. She made the most delicious vegetable salads from her garden every summer. Her secret ingredient? A pinch of love and the freshness of the ingredients that she grew herself. While I may not have a garden, I always try to choose the freshest and highest quality ingredients, just as she did.

This salad is high in proteins thanks to the Greek yogurt, which is known for its high content of quality proteins. Proteins are essential for building and maintaining muscle mass, as well as for feeling full. This is also a salad that is low in carbs, and it makes it ideal for those who are looking to reduce their carbohydrate intake from their diet.

It is also a great addition to any other meal or if you’re looking for a light and refreshing dish to bring to your next BBQ, look no further than this.
