Something Old, Something New

Today I thought I'd share two favorite foods of mine.

The first is a greek salad of sorts. A lady friend of mine used to make this years ago when we lived in Arizona and we always loved it. She makes it with spring greens. My husband doesn't like the spring green, but he loves this salad, so I usually make it with Romaine. I added spinach when I made it this time. This can be a meal all in itself, and even in the cold weather I find myself wanting it.

Greek Salad
Mix a little or all of the following according to your tastes.
  • Lettuce - Spring Mix or Romaine
  • Roma Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Kalamata Olives
  • Feta Cheese
  • Red Onions
  • Walnuts
  • Italian Dressing

Then, this a new little food that I saw on Lori's blog Finding Radiance and it looked so good I had to try it myself. It's baked sweet potato with laughing cow cheese on top. She tops it with broccoli sometimes also.
Believe it or not, it's delicious! It's one of my new favorites to have with some fruit for lunch.


  1. I make the same salad but have never thought to put walnuts in it! must try this!

  2. What kind of Italian dressing do you use? It looks really good!

  3. I'm glad you tried Lori's recipe - I saw it but couldn't imagine how it would taste. Now I'm not afraid to try it!!

  4. I use Wishbone Italian Dressing. It's not light, but I rarely use that much. All the other flavors come together so nice you don't need too much dressing.

  5. I'm always looking for recipes, especially tried and true ones. Thank you!
