Preparation Method


Wash the tomatoes and slice them; shred the carrots and the celery with a vegetable peeler. Peel the cucumbers, slice them thin and put them in a drainer with some salt to get rid of excessive water.


Arrange the vegetables on a serving dish and serve with the following sauce: mix some oil and vinegar with salt and pepper, flaked anchovies, onions and garlic.


Buon appetito!

This is a typical Mediterranean diet's recipe: the Basics of the Mediterranean diet, present especially in European countries and in the Mediterranean area, are based on the consumption of foods such as bread, fruit, vegetables, herbs, grains, olive oil, fish and wine in moderate quantities.The Mediterranean diet has in it a "nutritional paradox", the people who habitually eat according to the dictates of this diet consume relatively large amounts of vegetable fat, but despite this, they have lower rates of cardiovascular disease than populations that consume higher quantities of animal fats.
The explanation seems to be that the amount of extra virgin olive oil used in the Mediterranean diet scales, at least in part, the fats of animal origin.
