Feta Greek Salad
This lunch is intended for meat-free days, usually Mondays after a sociable weekend. Cheese is a great source of calcium and protein and also provides zinc, Vitamin A, B2 and B12.
Make sure the lettuce is crisp fresh and tasty and tomatoes at room temperature are nicer.
Tomatoes provide lycopene, a flavonoid that protects the blood vessels and heart.
