The only thing that I can think of making is a fresh salad with all our garden vegetables.
This has been one of my favorite's this summer. It's simple, quick and has a kick to it and will be one of the first salads on the guys list. They all love bacon.
This comes from the kitchen of Steff, a younger friend of mine who's always trying something new. If I need a quick appetizer, I can count on her and now I have a good collection of recipes/appetizers on hand.
- 4 cups romaine lettuce
- 4 cups baby spinach
- 2 peppers red/green/yellow/orange
- 1 pkg bacon fried and chopped
- 1 cup feta cheese
- 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
Prepare the lettuces together in a bowl and add the remaining ingredient on top.
Toss the last two ingredients together and toss on top just before serving.
I pour the dressing over and then mix it up slightly.
I love the colorful display, so I don't mix to much, rather let it soak through the leaves.
- 1/2 cup virgin olive oil
- 4 fresh garlic cloves
- 7 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- salt/pepper to taste
Make it ahead of time and take it along to the beach.
