Fat-Burning Mediterranean Salad Recipe With Apple Cider Vinegar Dressing

All the fantastic apple cider vinegar drink recipes got me thinking about other ways to incorporate ACV into my diet. This easy Mediterranean salad recipe not only has apple cider vinegar and olive oil, but healthy avocado, cucumber, tomatoes and red onions. All of these foods have proven health benefits and may help you burn fat, lose weight and improve gut health.

The fat-burning salad is made with avocado, red onion, cucumber, grape or cherry tomatoes, chopped fresh herbs, crumbled feta cheese, apple cider vinegar and olive oil. Toss all those ingredients together, season with salt and pepper, and you're in for a fresh treat for lunch or dinner. 

You could add other healthy ingredients like bell pepper, zucchini, broccoli, artichoke hearts or olives. Adjust the amounts to fit the servings needed for your family. The amounts listed below was enough for two with a little leftover for lunch the next day. This easy Mediterranean salad recipe takes about 5 minutes to make!
