My First Cabbage Salad!

I’ve never eaten coleslaw in my life. Is that weird? Isn’t that was a cabbage salad is?

Anyway, I was armed with the cutest little heads of cabbage from the farm and, yup you guessed it, feta. :) So i decided to combine them together and I’m so glad I did! This was fabulous! I almost ate the whole bowl in one sitting. I had to force myself to save it for dinner.

Yellow Squash and Pom Couscous Salad with Cilantro and Feta

I made this last week as a complete experiment. I thought it came out alright but not great. Until… I ate it cold! Then I feel in love! The sweet couscous with the bite of cilantro, fresh summer squash and creamy feta? YUM!

The husband wasn’t game but I had a friend come over and try it. She thought it was tasty and loved the cilantro. I think I may need to start cooking for others. ;) Read the rest of this post »»

Feta-a-fied Cheese and Crackers

Have I ever confessed my LOVE of cheese and crackers to you? Give me a hunk of cheese (cheddar, jack, muenster, whatever,) a knife, some crackers and I’m in heaven. I like it so much I stopped buying blocks of cheese. I’m serious! I can’t be trusted with them in the house. I can easily put down the whole thing! I have no cheese shut off valve. I really don’t.

Garden Tuna Salad With Feta

OK, don’t stone me for this but I HATE tuna salad. I never order it. Ever. I think it’s gross and totally disgusting. Not because of the tuna but because of the mayonnaise. I’ve never been a fan of mayo, even when I was a kid. Once I saw someone make it in a demonstration (blending oil and egg together) and it sealed the deal for me forever. No mayo thank you very much, I’ll stick with mustard.

But I really do like tuna. As I was rummaging through my fridge/pantry wondering what I was going to make last night, I came across a can. I also just happened to get my new shipment of feta from Athenos. A light bulb went off! Read the rest of this post »»

Summer Salmon Over Cilantro-Lime Rice with Kale

I tried so hard to record myself cooking this last night but Ryan was in rare form and it just didn’t work out. :( Regardless, I wanted to share this quick idea I had for a fun salmon dinner.

The husband wasn’t too impressed with the rice but he liked the salmon. The little guy liked the rice, not the salmon. I liked both! ;)

Here’s what I did… Read the rest of this post »»

Red Quinoa Salad with Skillet Veggies

I had no intentions of cooking last night. The husband was pissing me off. I had a long day at work. I have a messy house. A to-do list about as long as the yellow pages and I knew I was going to have to go to bed early just to wake up and start the cycle all over again.

*sigh*

Sometimes I just get into these blah funky moods. Read the rest of this post »»

Kohlrabi Watermelon Feta Salad

Believe me, I know, the title of this idea scares me too! First of all there’s a vegetable in there not many of us are familiar with (kohlrabi) and then I’m mixing one of natures most amazing fruit (at least I think so), the watermelon with cheese. Not any cheese but FETA. Yeah.. my gut response is yuck as well… but hear me out!

Basil Feta Cucumber Salad

Oh My! I can not believe how many amazing ideas I’m getting from the The First Fabulous Friday Feta Giveaway! Just reading through them is SO inspiring!

I combined a few of the comments to make a light tasty salad this morning. Coming off a weekend of insane fast food indulging this was the perfect light, tasty meal I needed. I love how 6 ingredients can pack so much satisfying flavor. And I absolutely adore the combo of balsamic, feta and basil! Read the rest of this post »»

Cilantro, Lime and Chickpea Salad with Feta

I told you guys I rarely read recipes, right? It’s funny but when I read them and actually find out what’s in the dish I’m not as inspired to make it. Oh I’m an odd duck, I know. lol Anyway I saw this recipe or should I say picture of Kalyn’s Carrot, Parsley, and Garbanzo (Chickpea) Salad with Feta and Cumin and I immediately got an idea for my own Chickpea and feta idea.
