As summer wanes, I'm still diligently working on this quilt -- but it has been my most challenging yet. I don't expect it to be finished for another few weeks...In the mean time, I have another great recipe to share. I have made this twice in the last three days -- it's a simple, refreshing side dish that works perfectly for those final BBQs and potlucks we are all trying to cram into our last few weekends of summer!
Greek Summer Salad
Makes A LOT (enough for a large potluck!)
2 Hot House or English Cucumbers, peeled and chopped
2 pints Grape Tomatoes, sliced in half
1 large Red Pepper, chopped
1 large Green Pepper, chopped
1/2 cup Green Onions, sliced
1/2 cup Pitted Kalamata Olives, sliced
1 1/2 - 2 cups Crumbled Feta Cheese
3 Tbs Red Wine Vinegar
1 Tbs Lemon Juice
3 Tbs Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a large glass, plastic or ceramic bowl -- toss to incorporate. Serve immediately, or cover and store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
I really like this recipe for potlucks -- it's a nice contrast to the usual heavy side dishes that tend to show up at these kinds of events. But it also serves as a simple side to your next lunch or dinner. Hope you enjoy!
