Greek Salad with Chocolate (VIDEO)

I love easy Greek recipes.  Not only are they my go-to when life can get hectic, they’re bursting with those flavors and nutrients I keep talking about.

The culinary innovations taking place in Greece right now shocked me beyond belief.  Next week I’ll publish an article on what fascinated me most about the entrepreneurial spirit Greeks have collected through their recent hardships.

Tomatoes always come to my mind when I think of summer.  Doesn’t matter where I’m at, Greece or the United States, a Greek salad is a must during the warm, sun-soaked days of summer.



Recreate the typical Greek salad into a polyphenol powerhouse!


  • 15 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, chopped
  • 3 cubes dark chocolate
  • 2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste


  • Combine tomatoes and cucumber in a bowl.
  • Toss with olive oil and sea salt/pepper.
  • Take the chocolate and grate on top of salad.
  • Top with feta cheese.
  • Chill the salad for 20 minutes before serving for the best taste. Enjoy!
