After eating soup and soft hot foods to help kill my cold, I was really craving something fresh, crispy, and refreshing. This salad satisfied my craving, and the remaining leaves of lettuce have been quickly gobbled up with zesty dressing. Since this isn’t much of a recipe, I’ll leave you with a list of the ingredients and a couple pretty pictures of my salad
Crisp Salad with Feta, Olives, and Basil
- Iceberg lettuce
- Feta cheese, crumbled
- Sliced black olives
- Shredded basil
- Thinly sliced fennel
- Sliced carrots
- Coins of roasted sweet potato
- Cherry tomatos
- Italian dressing
Sounds like a delicious spring time salad. I can’t wait for my basil to grow so that I can make salads with it!
Ooo! Do you grow your basil indoors or out?? We always get bunnies so our outdoor basil is normally gone before we get to it!!
I live in Brooklyn, so the closest thing to bunnies I get are the crazy squirrels that climb up my fire escape and nibble at my herbs. I usually buy basil plants, but this year my friend have me some basil seeds. I just sowed them the other day. Hopefully I’ll get sprouts soon!
