There’s something simply irresistible about the Mediterranean cuisine, and Natasha Bull seems to agree. The mastermind behind the food blog Salt & Lavender has a knack for developing recipes for delicious and healthy Mediterranean salads, and here are some of her very best.

Mediterranean Orzo Salad

At first glance, orzo may look like rice, but it’s actually a form of short-cut pasta. It’s the staple of Italian cuisine, and Bull used it to make this salad truly pop, along with such ingredients as cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, feta, olives, and chopped red onions.

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Bull is a huge fan of quinoa, and she couldn’t resist using it as the main ingredient in one of her salads, along with chopped bell peppers, red onions, cucumbers, kalamata olives, and cubed feta.

Mediterranean White Bean Salad

If you’re looking for a salad that’s filling, healthy, and delicious, all at once, this recipe is just the thing you’re searching for. Inspired by Greek cuisine, this salad effortlessly mixes white beans with such ingredients as feta, cucumbers, olives, and bell peppers.

Mediterranean Lentil Salad

All of Bull’s Mediterranean salads have a pretty similar list of add-ins, but she enjoys switching things up when it comes to the main ingredients and she opted for lentils this time around.
