The Salad!

Ok, I mentioned weeks ago that one of my favorite summer meals was a big salad and breadsticks. Well, I posted the breadstick recipe, but not the salad. Summer is definitely over, but we still love this!

So here is our favorite salad. I don't really follow a recipe, but here is what it normally has in it.

1 head romaine lettuce
1 can sliced black olives
1 container (about 7 oz) crumbled feta cheese
1 red pepper, chopped
1 cucumber, chopped
1/2 pound ditalini pasta, (or any small pasta) cooked
1 packet Zesty Italian dressing, mixed (or your favorite italian dressing)
Shredded chicken, optional

This is a Chop Salad. So it's best when everything is chopped really small. That way you can get a bite with a little bit of everything. Yummy!

(You could add a lot to this salad, but these are the vegetables that my kids like. If I were making this for just me, I'd add a lot more veggies. However, I've got my kids eating salad so I'm not pressing my luck!)

sounds great! i'm impressed that your children like feta cheese. i always think of feta as one of those things that requires an acquired taste. i'm not convinced that statement makes sense but you catch my drift.
