Healthy Yummy-ness: How To Make The Israeli Salad


I like food… maybe a little too much of it which of course is evident on the scales when I have the nerve to get on it. My cringe factor however is not about gaining weight, because lucky for me I stay within a healthy weight range. The concern for me is to eat healthy, make a conscious effort to eat healthy the best I can. So I found a nice and simple slightly spicy salad recipe on Feasting At Home that would be great.
