Watermelon + Feta Deliciousness!

I’m not so sure this one even needs a recipe.  It’s simple to throw together, refreshing in the heat and the pretty presentation always wows guests!  Just cube up fresh seedless watermelon, top with a piece of feta and a mini basil leaf, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and voila!  Now the only trick is keeping everyone’s fingers out of them until company arrives!

Easy Tomato Salad

Out of avoidance of the grocery store during “rush hour” (you know what I am talking about – the swamped aisles when everyone’s just left work and is buying everything just because their hungry after a long day), I whipped together this healthy tomato salad for dinner last night.

The recipe is simple… Tomatoes from the garden, a drizzle of olive oil, thinly sliced red onion, a crumbling of feta and some fresh basil.

Enjoy!

Spring Salad with Fried Feta

I am still picking all those delicious greens from the garden and have been concocting all sorts of interesting salads. Here is one I made for dinner the other night that was fast and quite tasty!

Spring Salad with Fried Feta
mesclun greens
asparagus spears
English peas
large pieces of feta cheese
1 cup bread crumbs (preferably fresh)

salt and pepper (for seasoning bread crumbs)
1 egg
oil for frying
vinaigrette of choice (I used the Honey-Roasted Almond recipe I made the other day)

Wash lettuce then assemble all things green.

Heat the oil over medium heat. Whisk the egg in a small bowl until slightly frothy. Dip cheese in egg and then coat with seasoned bread crumbs. Fry in oil for about 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

Toss salad with vinaigrette. Top with fried cheese and…

Enjoy!
