Shepherd's Salad

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

Chop all veggies, place into a glass bowl

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

It looks and sounds yummy minus the cucumbers! I switch them out for spinach instead. I love kalamata olives they are so yummy and with feta even better! :)

Mrs. Chic~ I'm sure baby spinach would hold up because the "dressing" is so light and you control the amount of wetness.

Mrs. Delightful ~ Thank you! I am sorry I just noticed your post. I have been super busy this week, seems either myself or one of the children have had an appointment every afternoon this week. Hope all is well and I hope you try the salad.
