Want a healthy fix for cheap? Surprisingly, this healthy fix is in the form of the classic Greek salad.

A Greek salad is not complete without the key inclusions of olives and feta. Having recently moved to Mayfair for work, I was overwhelmed by the amazing restaurant scene that extends from the main Oxford Street precinct to little alleys and street corners in and around high-end Mayfair.

The Greek salad you see in the picture is from a little cafe called Toast, situated on South Molton Street, around the corner from Bond Street station.

A friend and I entered Toast for a quick bite to eat and in attempts to stay slim opted for this salad. Now, having been to Greece, it is safe to say that you cannot compare the Greek salad from Toast (or any cafe for that matter) with a Greek salad from Greece, but if you are after something quick and light, then this is your best bet.

The Greek salad came out looking quite appetising, however I was quickly disappointed by the lack of flavour and the use of iceberg lettuce, which I personally would like to reprimand from every cafe in London.

The feta and olives were the key elements, and only elements, (along with a few scattered sun dried tomatoes) that added the only form of flavour to the dish. The cherry tomatoes were a tasty little treat and added a pop of colour to the otherwise dull plate.

In times like this I suggest you place the salad to the side and order their jacket potato, here is where their specialty lies.
