Bowl of Feta and Peaces

We’ve all heard of Peaches and Cream, right? I mean it’s a match made in heaven.

Well, the other day while snack searching, an idea hit me as soon as I opened the pantry and saw a can of peaches.

When I was traveling a couple of weeks ago, I had an amazing salad during a layover in the Detroit airport. It was at a small Irish pub in the B terminal. I can’t remember what it was called but the salad was basically a pile of greens, grilled chicken, nuts, dried cranberries, canned pears and feta. The combination was out of this world! Especially the pear-feta bites.

Peaches and FetaI know pears and peaches aren’t the same but after that experience I knew the salty bite of the feta would be amazing with the sweet flesh of almost any canned fruit.

Peaches and Feta was born.

I would not have believed how amazingly good this was unless I tried it myself. If you ever had fruit and cheese in a salad you will totally dig this. It’s simple, satisfying and a fun way to beat a snack attack or mix up breakfast!

Here’s what I did…

  • 1 can peaches in light syrup (or its own juices) drained and rinsed in cold water
  • 1 oz crumbled feta cheese
  • Dried parsley (optional)

I like to drain and rinse the peaches out of the can. I’m not sure if it removes any extra sugar, but it’s a simple way to slightly chill them out of the pantry.

Pour the peaches into a bowl. Top with the feta and a sprinkle of dried parsley.

Enjoy!

    Hi Roni, I wish that I knew you were in the Detroit area, I would love to have met you in person! The name of that pub was “Thee Irish Pub” at Detroit Metro Airport McNamara Terminal – Concourse B. Next time please let me know when you will be here.

      I actually never got a chance to leave the airport. :( It was just a pitstop on the way to Kalamazoo for a quick meeting. I hope to come back though!
