Great Summer Salad!!
Last I had a cooking class at one of our stores, using Fresh Herbs was one the points for the class.
Picture of the class, a few more came after I got started, it was a great turn out 🙂
This was one of the recipes I did, I love using this really as a base with so many options at your finger tips.
You can certainly serve as is, or add fresh grilled veggies chopped, add cubes of fresh mozzarella instead of feta, or shredded fresh Parmesan cheese, or slice pepperoni, salami, cube ham or turkey. And what about Grilled Shrimp, thin slices of grilled flat iron steak even chunks of grilled salmon there are endless possibilities!!
Along with other fresh herbs you could add as well!!
Everyone at my class love it as is and a friend of my mine made it last week for his work’s cook out and it was hit with them as well. Enjoy if you make it!!
