#01 Tomatoes, Feta, Parsley and Garlic Salad

A 30 salads challenge is starting today with the purpose to promote raw foods eating and hence good health. Ad delicious foods as well.
It would be too ambitious though for me at the moment to make it on everyday basis, so I will try to complete the challenge in the next two months.
But the summer is a perfect time to start experimenting with raw foods, because as the temperatures go higher the body needs more water to stay hydrated and naturally avoids cooked foods.
So let's start with a simple two-ingredient recipe, seasoned with parsley and garlic.
This recipe is low-salt, low-fat and low-calorie, suitable for dieting and for some special regimes as food combining. The salad however is rich in flavours, vitamins, minerals and water locked in the vegetables, thus packed with healthy stuff.
Tomatoes, Feta, Parsley and Garlic Salad

(serves 2)
2-3 medium-sized tomatoes
50 gr (fresh) feta cheese - crumbled
1 clove of garlic - sliced
a drizzle of olive oil
a bunch of parsley to taste

You can avoid adding salt because the cheese will be salty anyway.
Wash and slice the tomatoes and arrange on a plate. Sprinkle the feta cheese crumbles and the garlic slices. Drizzle a tiny bit if olive oil and sprinkle parsley to taste.
It's ready to serve.

Fresh tomatoes and feta always go well together!

It's true, next time I'll do an extended version with olives, red onions and stuff. :)
