We are so blessed.
We have a wonderful marriage, a home, a baby on the way...
and wonderful neighbors...
The kind of neighbors who come over when we aren't home and leave bags full of fresh produce from their garden at our back door...
See what I mean?
and the best part is that the cucumbers and lettuce above are 100% all natural, organically grown, right over the fence =)
Last night, we were headed to our friends house for a cookout, so I thought it would be a good time to use the yummy cucumbers to make Cucumber Feta Salad, a perfect accompaniment to a summer meal.
I started by rinsing off the cucumbers, and roughly peeling them, leaving a little skin for some texture:)
Then I chopped them all up into quarters like this:
Next I added the yumminess...feta cheese with garlic and herbs...mmmm!
At that point Mike came home from the grocery store with my cherry tomatoes (and, yes, my hubby loves to grocery shop...did I mention how blessed I am;)
We were in such a hurry to get out the door, that I barely took any pics of this step, but its pretty easy...
I just rinsed and cut the toms in half and added them to the bowl. Then for additional flavor, because you can never have too much, I added some minced garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper to the mix...
and voilà, fresh Cucumber Feta Salad!
It was delicious! but not nearly as good as the time spent eating it with our dear friends:)
Sorry if the picture is a little blurry;( we really were in a hurry to get out the door and on our way!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!
