|Some of the fresh produce that I bought this past week at the markets.|
First, let's get one thing straight.......my recipes are not strict lists of ingredients and measurements but merely suggestions! I often gather whatever I have on hand and then improvise. So that's how this 'recipe' began.
For tonight's salad I used 2 cucumbers (about 6" each) 1/2 golden zucchini, 1/4 or less red bell pepper, maybe about 2 Tbsp. onion (chopped small), 1 clove garlic (chopped fine), some red ripe tomatoes (maybe about 2 cups chopped) and DARN IT, I meant to add some corn, freshly cut off the cob and forgot to add it!
After chopping the veggies and tossing them in a bowl, I added a couple of pinches of sea salt, a little coarsely ground black pepper, some freshly snipped dill and then drizzled it with some Italian dressing. Then right before serving I tossed on some feta cheese (maybe about 1/2 cup). Our local grocery store had some feta cheese with sun dried tomatoes and basil - so it was a great blend.
