Feta-Salad Pita

Welcome Back to our blog!

This week each of us authors are sharing the best new recipe we've tried this year. Mine is Feta-Salad Pita.

My daughter's college roomie found the recipe in an old cookbook and gave it a try. She loved it. My daughter loved it. My husband and I tried it and - you guessed it - we loved it. There's a fresh, middle-easternesque taste to it. During the long sizzling summer days, this was a welcomed taste treat that didn't heat up the kitchen. You can try it now or wait until next summer when you have an abundance of fresh garden produce.

Feta-Salad Pita

2 radishes
1 roma tomato
1/2 cucumber
1/4 red onion
4 oz feta cheese
Finely chop all the veggies, add the cheese. Then coat with dressing:
1 1/2 TBS lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Mix together until salt dissolves
Add 1/2 TBS olive oil (or EVOO as Rachel Ray would say).

Brush pitas with EVOO and broil each side one minute. While warm, fill with salad mix and enjoy! Yum.

Now, what's the best new recipe you've tried this year. C'mon share it . . . .
