Tuna salad a complete meal and so delicious!

Written by litsa. Posted in Main Dishes, Recipes, Salads

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. 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!

Watermelon for hydration and the salty Feta for keeping some of the moisture in our system On a hot summer day!
