Mediterranean Artichoke Salad
This counter-seasonal snack is designed to carry you through the worst of allergy season - with no compromise in nutrition or flavor!
I hate to break it to you, but the odds are your favorite salad is full of high-histamine foods that may exacerbate spring allergies and inflammation during high pollen season.
High-histamine salad elements include:
Aged cheeses like blue cheese or parmesan
The good news is that it’s very simple to “eat around” these high-histamine foods in the spring, and replace them with delicious alternatives like mozzarella, ricotta, pumpkin & sunflower seeds, and one of my favorite vegetables, artichoke.
Why It’s Wild:
Bursting with the flavors of Greece, my Mediterranean Artichoke Salad offers a tart and creamy flavor profile - and a low histamine burden! Antioxidant-rich peppers and happy heirloom tomatoes combine with artichoke hearts rich in insoluble fiber for a liver-clearing treat full of natural plant enzymes to aid digestion.
You Will Need:
- 1 can organic artichoke hearts, rinsed and drained
- 1 red and 1 green bell pepper, cut into long, narrow strips
- 1 organic heirloom tomato, quartered and cut into thin slices
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- (optional) 2 tablespoons minced fresh dill
-Combine all vegetable elements in a bowl, drizzle with oil, salt and pepper.
-Add chopped herbs if desired and mix thoroughly.
Serve & enjoy or save in a glass container for this week’s meal prep!
