Amazing Layered Salad

This amazing layered salad recipe is a mix of favorite salad vegetables, like cucumber and tomato, mixed in a tangy and herbaceous vinaigrette. Similar to Greek salad recipes, this simple salad combines soft and crunchy vegetables with a herb dressing. The dressing uses olive oil, which is a healthier fat. Unlike other oils, olive oil doesn’t contain trans-fats and is filled with Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids. Grapeseed oil is another excellent choice because it contains vitamin E, which plays a role in protecting the cell membranes.

Soft, delicate-flavored herbs are important to the salad dressing; rather than choosing a herb like rosemary, which can be tough and strong tasting, instead choose parsley or oregano, for a subtle but earthy note. Fresh herbs, like parsley, are underestimated for their nutritional value. Parsley contains very high amounts of vitamin C and vitamin A. Rather than adding parsley leaves to the salad dressing recipe alone, consider garnishing with it for a pretty appearance and increased nutrition.
