Advice

You can add other vegetables such as cucumber, radishes etc. The best salads are made with fresh ingredients of the season. By adding whey cheese or ricotta cheese you have added high-quality protein to a light tossed salad. If sheep- or cow-milk whey cheese is not available, ricotta cheese makes a perfect substitute.
