I have to admit that people are now eating food with less % fat due to their awareness of the many health problems caused by eating "rich" food.
Maria is going to share with you today a simple, Saturday lazy salad, with a dressing of her own using Anthótiro or ricotta  (10-13% fat) instead of Feta (40% fat).
