We are in high gear, full time packing mode around here.  Three more days and my family and I are headed back east to kick off the next chapter of our lives back where we grew up… Jersey!  After 11 years in LA, it’s just time.

In the meantime, I wanted to get this recipe up before the holiday weekend starts.  It’s just the kind of salad you’ll be looking for this weekend.  So check it out and let me know what you think.

The next time we chat, I’ll be a Jersey girl again;).

Ingredients:

  • 2 large cucumbers (6 cups chopped)

  • 2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled into hearty pieces

Directions:

In a large bowl combine chopped cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and red onion.  Set aside.
