For a high protein meal, you can add some roasted chicken breast or turkey meat. For an added fat, you can add 1/2 an avocado and drizzle 1 tbsp MCT oil over the salad or add a handful crushed almonds / cashews.

If you are making this Mediterranean salad with a dairy based cheese, I always recommend looking for a good grass-fed cheese.  If you are able to find it, I love a good raw goat or sheep’s milk cheese as those are the easiest on your digestive system but they can be tough to find.  If you can’t do dairy, I like this dairy cheese alternative.

In the picture, we used some non-coated crispy fried onions as well for added color.  This is an optional ingredient and not needed unless you want a nice crunch and some extra flavor.

Dr Jockers Comments

This Mediterranean salad recipe is one of my favorite things that my wife and I make at home all the time.   It is full of life-giving ingredients that are full of flavor and support fat burning and a healthy immune system.

Olives and olive oil are rich in monounsaturated fats, polyphenols and vitamin E and are one of the healthiest things you can put in your body!  Artichokes are one of the best prebiotic fibers for your gut microbiome and they have compounds that thin the bile and support optimal bile flow.

I also enjoy adding in Hearts of Palm which adds in more prebiotic fibers to support the microbiome.  Onions are rich in quercetin and sulfur compounds to reduce inflammation and optimize immune health.
