Inspiration for this recipe comes from a dinner out at a local restaurant with my husband Jack. We were both in the midst of another round of the Whole30 program (you can read about that here), and I ordered a meal of Chilean sea bass topped with a Mediterranean salsa.  That salsa was absolutely delicious – diced zucchini and yellow squash, tomatoes, shallots, olives and feta cheese – and I knew I wanted to try recreating it at home.

But I also wanted to make it Whole30 compliant – so I swapped out the feta and added in Kalamata olives, capers and a splash of balsamic vinegar to give our version of Mediterranean salsa that same briny flavor. (Feel free to add the feta back in if you prefer.)

We also don’t cook sea bass at home very often (it can be expensive!) so we tried the Mediterranean salsa over some grilled grass fed beef patties – and absolutely loved it!

Meals like this easy and delicious Grilled Beef Patties with Mediterranean Salsa make it easy to stay on a Whole30 or other low carb eating program.

  1. Hi Martha,
    I have tried several of your Whole30 recipes and we love them. This one may become our favorite,
    since we love all the ingredients, including feta (I may cheat a little).
    Hope you’re having a wonderful Spring….weather is delightful here in the Mid South.
    Linda

    • We hope you love this recipe too Linda! (Definitely add the feta if you aren’t trying to stay dairy-free… 🙂 We’ve had a week of pouring rain this week but Mother Nature is promising 80 degrees here in New England over the weekend – we’ll see if she delivers. Thank you as always for taking the time to write to us. Have a great rest of the week! Martha
