It's summer time, almost, so there will be a lot of salads coming on this blog. This is one I made a few days ago but kept the pictures for a later post...one week later. I have a full time job now, food-related, so my cooking/baking time as gone WAY down! But I'm still around... So this salad was thrown together after looking in the fridge and grabbing whatever was in there:
1 zucchini 3-4 button mushrooms 1 clove garlic Leftover millet from last week "bread of the week"(about 1/2 cup was left...) 2-3 big pieces sundried tomatoes BIG chunk feta cheese about 1/4 cup roasted UNsalted sunflower seeds.
I started by sauteeing the zucchini, mushrooms and garlic in olive oil, with oregano(lots of it!!), salt, pepper, and paprika. In a big bowl I mixed the cold millet, feta, sundried tomatoes and sunflower seeds with cracked black pepper. Didn't add salt because feta is pretty salty already... I threw in the hot sauteed zucch's and 'shrooms to make the cheese soften a bit. I then mixed in 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 2-3 tablespoons olive oil.
So fresh and delicious.
Only thing missing is a nice cold glass of white wine...
