Good lunch!

This lunch reminds me so much of the time I really started cooking. It’s one of those “oh dear God, what is in my fridge” sort of meals. Basically, I took a look in my fridge and saw the following:

  • Too-salty, pre-marinated grilled lemon herb chicken breast
  • Greek yogurt
  • Mint
  • Watermelon
  • Arugula
  • Feta
  • Whole-wheat pita
  • Leftover roasted veggies
  • Cucumber
  • Etc.

I wanted to use the chicken, but it really is too dang salty. I figured if I chopped it up and mixed it with some Greek yogurt, that would balance out the flavors. To zest it up and add some veggies, I grated a cucumber and crushed a garlic clove into the yogurt. Now I had a yummy Greek chicken salad to fill my pita with…and it wasn’t too salty! Add a sliced tomato from my squirrel-infested garden, and we are good to go!

I made a quick watermelon salad with the arugula, feta, watermelon and a quick red wine vinaigrette. Yum!

    I’m going to follow your recommendation of using a sliced watermelon as a base for a fresh greens, burrata & watermelon salad. It’s a combination I encountered on one of the many wedding caterer tastings.

    Happy birthday, lovely lady!
