come together and they give us perfection!

Summer and salads, with vegetables, picked at the perfect moment we need them, that is what makes a perfect salad!

Not everyone has a garden which is the ideal way, but we make the best of the situation.

We look and see if there are any local farmers markets and we visit them, they are bursting with seasonal products, and it is a celebration, the land celebrates a job well done with the different colors, textures, and flavors, it’s like it’s saying to us, I am strong and no matter what you do to me I will still feed you and provide for you….You are not kind to me but I have staying power and I care for you…

Unconditional Love!

I like to pick the gifts of the land myself and I am fortunate to have a farm very close to my house, what a delightful time I enjoy!

I want you to know the secrets for the best Greek tomato salad.

Here they are!

Corn salad, a salad for all seasons!

Written by Litsa Bolontzakis. Posted in Recipes, Salads

Salads, salads and more salads, I can live on salads! And corn salad I adore! It is a grain I like to use very much.

This is an amazing salad, and it travels very well, for a picnic, or a BBQ with friends and it never disappoints.

It is also practical, you can make it ahead of time, and it gets better the longer it stays.

What makes or breaks a salad is the quality of the ingredients, so make sure you have good olive oil and fine quality balsamic vinegar.

Tuna salad a complete meal and so delicious!

Love, love salads. And a Tuna salad is a complete meal.

Salads are fresh, seasonal, and so healthy.

They allow you to be creative and have fun with the different colors textures and tastes. No too many rules when it comes to salads, just mix what you like and enjoy.The word SALATA in Greek means exactly that, you are all mixed up, just like a salad!LOL

Salads are excellent as a side dish or a main meal.

If you like add some other protein, like Chicken, and they are so perfect!

If you are a vegetarian, omit the protein and add a baked potato.Wow…

Orzo Summer salad (Manestra Stolismenh)

Written by Litsa Bolontzakis. Posted in Recipes, Salads

Orzo or Manestra as we call it in Greek is my favorite comfort food.

I like it the traditional way, but it’s a lot of fun to experiment and come up with a new recipe.

I like to play with the different ingredients and this time, this salad is awesome. Summer is upon us and salads are a must for me. I like to have them ready and available when hunger strikes. Pasta is easy to prepare and when you add some fresh vegetables it becomes like my mother said when I was preparing it “Manestra stolismenh”.I thought it was so cute and I adopted the name. What a pleasure to be trying out recipes and have my dear mother keeping me company and always having something sweet to say…..

Have fun with this Orzo salad. Make some extra and look around and really see…….Maybe a dear friend is sick, an older person can’t cook, be generous and share…..It is better to give than to receive Jesus said and there is so much wisdom in his words!
