Cleopatra Salad

So the other day I made some Mediterranean Chicken  after going to spend the day looking at the Cleopatra exhibit on display here.  The chicken turned out super yummy.  To go along with this comforting dish you need a fresh side dish.  A salad of some sorts would be a perfect partner.

My Cleopatra Salad is simple, and oh so tasty. With cucumber and tomato as the star ingredients, it's light and healthy, and did I mention it tastes sooo good!  Fresh ingredients with minimal fuss.  Can't get much better than that!  Named after the woman and the exhibit that inspired this dish, beautiful and smart with bright flavors.

This would be an excellent dish served at lunch along with a sandwich, or at dinner as I've done here.  It can be made ahead, but the prep is easy enough to work into your weeknight routine.  This definitely fits the Fast & Fresh definition.

A great dish I'm sure the whole family will enjoy!
