Mediterranean Salad Recipe

It was a gorgeous day on Sunday so we headed north to check out the farm markets to see what we could find.  I found Teddy an organic pig ear.

Do you want to try to take this away from her?

Go ahead..I dare you!  She is standing there looking at me waiting for me to leave so her treat will be safe.


I bought some locust honey.

And the last of the Queen Ann cherries.

I bought a box of tomatoes from a roadside stand.

This morning, I made the shelter a big Mediterranean salad for their lunch.  Dice tomatoes, cucumbers and celery.  Add sliced red onion and sliced green olives.  Sprinkle with a bit of cumin, S&P, granulated garlic and oregano. 

Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Sprinkle in about 1 cup of feta cheese.

Toss to coat.  Let it sit for about 15 minutes and toss it again.  This is a really good salad.

I bought lots of zucchini and made them my zucchini casserole.  The recipe for this is on my sidebar.

I've never heard of locust honey, the salad will be well appreciated that I'm sure of, poor Teddy, its so funny because our little guy did the same thing, he didn't want us to know where he buried his treats and half the time he buried them in imaginary dirt!
I'll have to try that casserole, I have so much right now!
That salad must be delicious! I must buy vegetables tomorrow on my way home from the hospital.

I used to have a pig farmer as work friend and every time he had slaughtered pigs my dogs got the ears :-) I used to bake them in the oven and my dogs went crazy while waiting for them to be done :-)

Have a great day!

I'm sure they loved that fresh taste of summer
Mack buries his pigs ears and Stella digs them up...

The Mediterranean salad looks soo yum! We are all hanging out for tomatoes to be back in season again.

Sounds delicious - the Mediterranean salad, that is - not the pig's ear.:-) I'm no competition for Teddy.

PS) Teddy hide that PIG'S EAR they are special indeed.
PH came home loaded with all sorts of fresh fruit this afternoon..
I would love your version of a fresh fruit salad made with summer fruits of grapes etc.
Your salad today sounds wonderful but I am craving fruits.. :)
Teddy reminds me so much of Mele. Mele does the same thing..waits for me to leave so she can get down to the business of devouring her treats. :) Empty life without our dogs!
Locust honey? Nope..new to me.
