As I mentioned in my statement about myself in the blog, I enjoy cooking~ and trying new recipes at least twice a month. I subscribe to several cooking magazines and honestly had to restrict myself from purchasing any more cookbooks! I have waaay too many!
Since I have denied myself any new cookbooks, I spend even more time going through my recordings of my favorite cooking shows on both the Food Network, and the Cooking Channel. Imagine my delight when Sunny Anderson shared a delightful new (or at least to me) salad recipe "Shepherds Salad" with me. An easy, tasty and hearty salad that will satisfy your pallette.
1/4 cup of chopped Parsley
1/2 cup of chopped Kalamata Olives (I love these so, I use 1 cup)
1/4 cup of chopped Red Onion
2 Cucumbers chopped with skin on (I used one last night for a smaller amount of salad)
1 large Roma Tomato chopped
1/2 cup of Feta Cheese (I buy the crumbled Feta Cheese)
1/2 cup of fresh squeezed Lemon Juice
Kosher Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper to taste
1/3 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 cup of Olive Oil
Add lemon juice, oil and vinegar and fold the liquids into the veggies. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving
Sprinkle in Feta Cheese just before serving and toss
