Mediterranean Chopped Salad
Having a salad for a meal? Why not add an egg to make it even healthier? Studies show that eating eggs, which naturally contain fats, alongside vegetables helps the body to better absorb the fat-soluble nutrients in veggies like vitamin E and lutein.
This Mediterranean Chopped Salad is filled with colorful veggies like cherry tomatoes and cucumbers. Perfectly hard-boiled eggs on top allow you to maximize the benefits of all of the salad’s healthy nutrients!
