I made lunch for the Spider Monkey Lunch Forum today. Because, I'm cool like that. And, because I had an abundance of cherry tomatoes from my garden I needed to use before I take off for the vacay of a lifetime.
Summer time means lots and lots and lots of Chopped Greek Salad. And, it couldn't be easier. This giant bowl has quartered cherry tomatoes, two long (farmer's market) cucumbers that I peeled and chopped, a couple small (also farmer's market) purple onions I chopped, and two yellow bell peppers also chopped. I also like to add a handful of chopped italian parsley if I have it available. Often, I make a dressing of salt/pepper/finely chopped or grated garlic, fresh lemon juice and olive oil. But, I'm being lazy today and bought greek dressing in a bottle.
At lunch, I'll add in greek olives, feta, chick peas, and I bought some spinach in case anyone wants leafy greens with their salad. I also have regular and roasted red pepper hummus and pita bread.
I'm pretty sure, I could invade the next county over, once my troops are well fed.
