Six months not having a regular exercise (read: brisk-walking) and I think I gain weight . Tsk tsk. My metabolism is getting slower…
With that in mind, I thought It would be good to try something new yet sumptuous. At home, first time ever… feta cheese salad.
Your choice of vegetables but here is mine. Good for one.
Feta cheese, cut into slices
1 tbsp Chopped fresh coriander leaves (only if you like…)
1 Lebanese cucumber, sliced
Peeled baby carrots (you may steam ‘em to lose some crunchiness)
1 Large tomato, cut into bite-size pieces, seeded
Luncheon meat, diced (optional)
4 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp Lemon juice
Wash everything and drain. Arrange the fancy lettuce in the bottom of your salad plate.
In another bowl, chunk in cucumber, tomatoes, carrots and coriander. Pour in olive oil and lemon juice and mix together. Add in feta cheese and ham and mix together gently.
Pour on top of the fancy lettuce platter and serve immediately.
Tonight I will be hosting a dinner for A‘s friends; planning to prepare this salad sans ham to serve together with Fettuccine Alfredo heavy with salami, bacon and mushrooms. Haven’t decided on a side yet, though a simple chicken dish might be the right choice.
