Our garden is getting closer to having ripe produce and I can't wait. The green tomatoes are just starting to turn red and yellow and the zuchinni is almost ready to harvest. I've been using a lot of basil from my plants and using some thyme as well.
We are looking forward to the Indianapolis Devour Downtown which is August 2-15! You can check out all the amazing restaurants that are participating - they have some delicious looking menus!
I'm going to give you a little preview of the August issue of Saveur and share this yummy Greek Salad. It was flavorful, fresh, colorful, and really tasty. I used less feta then the recipe suggested but put a little extra on the table to pass for those who wanted more. We really enjoyed this salad!

I really really love Greek salad. I made a really good one from slivers of red onion, toasted pitta bread cubes, feta cheese and cucumber slices. But I'm willing to give this a try! :-)ReplyDelete
