Zoe's Greek Salad



So I just got back from visiting my best friend, Zoe, in her hometown of Boston. And while I was there, she made a salad for us to have with dinner one evening.

Now, this may sound like a not big deal. But let me tell you, friends: I have never seen Zoe cook anything other than...popcorn. And I love that about her! It is part of her very considerable charm.

We went grocery shopping (Whole Foods) and talked about how to pick a good tomato and why it's so important to buy them organic. And bought the rest of the fixins for Zoe's masterpiece salad.



It was delicious and it was also a delight to watch Zoe in the kitchen. I have to admit I felt a little like a proud mama hen watching.

So next time you need a light, summery salad that is super easy to put together to go along with your lunch or dinner, Zoe's Greek Salad is a great choice!*




Zoe's Greek Salad


- 2 ripe, summery-smelling, slightly tender to the touch organic tomatoes
- 1 large English cucumber (the kind without seeds, usually comes shrink-wrapped in plastic)
- Feta cheese, diced and crumbled
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Salt & pepper to taste

Dice the tomato, cucumber, and feta into similar sizes. Toss with the olive oil and salt and pepper and ENJOY.


* I know I sound like a commercial. But I'm really so proud! And thrilled that she is letting me feature it on this blog.

  2. Really, is there ANYTHING more summery than a ripe summer tomato? It is totally like summer bursting into your mouth. I can't wait for summer tomatoes either. Sigh.

    Another great summer tomato recipe that is also super, super easy:

  4. I love nothing more than to pick a nice ripe summer tomato, rub it on my sleeve and take a huge bite out of it. The more it runs down my arm the better!

    In case you didn’t know, I found your blog through DadGoneMad. I've posted a complete list of everyone who left their blog link on his Big Big Stars post a while back in a post of my own in April called Blog Rolling With My Homies over on my blog, so if you want to see it come on over and sit a spell. I don't bite..…that hard anyway!

    If you did know just overlook this and pretend I said something funny since my brain feels like mush from trying to comment on all 217 on the list because somebody had the bright idea to challenge me to it!!
