Manchego makes this dish rich in protein and calcium, which helps keep bones and teeth strong. Meanwhile the tomatoes are a good source of the antioxidant lycopene while cucumbers contain vitamin K, which helps prevent bone clotting.

If you're not cutting carbs, serve this dish with some freshly grilled slices of whole wheat baguette for added fiber and texture.
