Hearty Greek Salad

We’re always changing up our version of a “Greek Salad”. Sometimes we keep it a simple “Horiatiki” or Village Salad with the basics and other times we add chicken, and use a crunchy Romain as a base. The secret in this Greek salad is the dressing!

Warm Goat Cheese Salad

This recipe is so versatile and easy I promise! It is more of a “formula” than a recipe.  Be creative and have fun!

Add something crunchy like walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, pepitas…(for crunchy satisfying texture)

Add some fresh fruit like apples, grapes, pears, orange supremes…(for that burst of freshness)

Add some dried fruit like cranberries, cherries, raisins… (for a sweet/tart chew)

Add something with a little bite like red onion, pickled onion, green onion…(for a kick)

If you don’t like goat cheese or want to make this a hearty meal replace the croquettes with grilled shrimp or chicken, and add a sprinkle of blue cheese crumbles or feta. 

You can also change the dressing to mix any of your favorite Island Olive Oil and vinegar pairings

Kale-Chard Salad

A delicious source of calcium and folic acid, this beautiful salad is a great way to happily introduce kale and chard to your friends and family. “Massaging" the dressing into the kale and chard tenderizes the greens and brings out their brilliant color. You will be amazed at how much this salad shrinks after the dressing is added! This salad takes some effort, so you may want to enlist help with the de-leafing and massaging, (Kids think this is fun!) This salad keeps for five days in the refrigerator.
