Three Bean Salad Recipe

This salad recipe doesn't call for any vinegar or lemon juice in the dressing. The natural acidity of the nectarines is all you'll need. As an added bonus, the nectarines lend an added freshness to the dish. Three beans are used in the salad: black eyed peas, kidney beans and black beans. Crumbled feta cheese, jicama, Romaine lettuce, baby spinach leaves and a few other ingredients complete the dish.

The salad is not only tasty but filling, due to the starchy nature of the legumes. Especially with vegetarians in my house, I find that a bean salad is a simple, nutritious and tasty option for lunch when I just don't feel like cooking.

Deep Fried Feta Cheese Recipe

This weekend is the Super Bowl, but Lulu and his friends are so disappointed that the Niners didn't quite make it (and with Kyle Williams in particular) that they're threatening not to watch the game. Even though the boys are being such party poopers, I still plan on putting out a nice spread. As they say, the game must go on!

This particular dish is my take on the traditional fare of breaded mozzarella cheese sticks. Instead of mozzarella though, I made my fried treats with raw feta cheese. The cheese is from Redwood Hill Farms, and it is just delicious! It has such a strong flavor and really holds up well to being deep-fried. Unlike mozzarella, feta cheese doesn't melt but keeps a very pleasant firm texture. 



To finish the plate, I drizzled a basil dressing on the appetizers for a contrast of color. For the party, I'll probably serve the fried feta cheese on a large tray, but you could also place a smaller portion as I did on a bed of diced vegetables.
