I apologize for not including any inspiring words, insight, humor or knowledge. I can barely find the time to type out the ingredients for my recipes right now. So...in an effort to at least post some things, I will just be posting the recipes for a while.
Now that I think about it, some of you are probably like, "Thank GOD!!!" ;-)
Simple and quick. There's nothing better than that. This recipe takes five minutes to throw together and is really yummy.
2 english cucumbers, sliced into 3/4" rounds then quartered
1 medium red onion, finely diced
2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
1-2 cups (your preference) calmata olives, drained and rinsed
1 cup feta cheese, crumbled (optional)
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all veggies and olives in large salad bowl. The dressing is completely optional as the mixture of veggies is delicious in itself. If you choose to use the dressing, add a little at a time, mixing to coat the veggies until you reach your desired flavor.
This is a great last-minute recipe and pairs well with many, many entrees.
