Love our Farmer’s Market!
There are many of us that just don’t have much space for growing vegetables (or we prefer flowers), so I for one so appreciate our Farmer’s Market! The fresh produce they offer is such a treat in the summer. The tomatoes are starting and the cucumbers are great. What is better than both of these veggies fresh? Here is a salad recipe using these summer veggies!
Greek Tomato Salad:
1 lb tomatoes, cut in chunks or use cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half
1 medium cucumber, halved length wise and sliced
3/4 cup black olives (can cut in half)
1 1/2 cup feta cheese
1/2 pepper sliced
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
Place tomatoes, pepper, cucumber and olives in bowl. Whisk together dressing ingredients, pour over veggies, then feta cheese. Toss together. Serve.
Have a great week!

I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
