Olive and Tomato Salad

Updated on March 12, 2012

When I first began experimenting in the kitchen I was more into sweets. So I went through a major chocolate making phase, followed by a cake baking stage and eventually a cheesecake making phase before I graduated to more serious cooking.

Then came the meat and chicken phase and eventually the vegetables and salad making stage. Initially I would follow recipes that I managed to get from my Mother, Aunts, and any friends who could actually cook. Then I graduated to making up my own variations of these recipes.

The Olive and Tomato Salad recipe I share here is one of the few that I came up with all on my own. So its extra special to me. Plus it tastes great as a side to a dish of pasta or cheese macaroni. And yes its really low calorie so you can use it as a nice filling meal if you are on a diet.
