Hi, my name is Stella Metsovas, and I'm a media, nutrition, and health expert. And today, I'm going to show you how to make a Greek vegetable salad. The key ingredient are the fava beans. You don't have to use fava beans. You can use any sort of legume you like. I'm going to use some arugula, rich in Vitamin A and Vitamin C. Try to vary your greens. Here are the fava beans, really big in the Mediterranean culture. In fact, you can use fava beans to actually make a puree, which is really good on crackers. Now, I'm going to get a little bit of radicchio. Radicchio is, it's a lettuce leaf used also in the Mediterranean, but it's really peppery, similar to, like, the arugula. Little bit of onion. Some basil, fresh. You always want to tear your basil. Some tomatoes. Can use any type of tomatoes you like. I'm going to use some pine nuts here. Can also use pecans, walnuts. A little bit of feta cheese, one of the most common ingredients in Greek cooking. There you go. Okay, now I'm going to dress the dish with some freshly cut oranges, just to give it a nice addition of color. Olives are next. Olives are really, really, really another staple ingredient in the Mediterranean diet. Going to use a little bit of olive oil, don't need much. Some sea salt. Again, you don't need much here, because of the feta. And, some fresh pepper. So, now we just put the pepper on top. The dish is ready. Enjoy! Stini yiamas! Kai kali orexi! Enjoy!
