It's the end of the challenge

One more recipe will post on Coconut & Lime tomorrow but Sunday is August and that means the end of my Athenos' Change for the Feta challenge is here. Honestly, I've nearly forgotten what it was like to go a day without eating feta! Cheddar almost tastes strange to me now, although I still like it. I did feel healthy eating so many salads. Normally I am not a huge salad eater, especially before August when tomato season really hits Baltimore but it was nice to eat so many vegetables and have an excuse to eat so much cheese!

Remember to check out the Athenos feta Facebook page for updates on contest and feta events.

Feta Days

As the month of feta winds down I am pleased to report that it wasn't as difficult to eat a salad with feta every day as I feared it might be. I did go through those huge bags of romaine from Costco at an alarming rate but honestly, it was easy to plan meals when you knew one was salad. And I got to try more varieties of Athenos feta that I even knew existed. I am looking forward to trying feta in non-salad recipes though.

Zuke Chips + Feta

I came across this salad on We Are Not Martha and love the idea! I have never breaded and baked zucchini before but now I am wondering why I haven't! I love zucchini and I think it would be great crispy. The salty Athenos feta would be a great contrast with the more subtle zucchini.

Watermelon-Feta Salad

How yummy is this watermelon-feta salad from Two Peas and Their Pod? I have been dying to try a fruit + feta salad but I haven't found a good watermelon yet. Perhaps this weekend? Or do you think peaches would be good with Athenos feta? We have some awesome local peaches.

We are not Martha!

Fellow Change for the Feta bloggers, We are not Martha posted this yummy recipe for feta-quinoa salad. I don't eat enough quinoa myself, my husband is not a fan and since we are a family of two, I don't make a lot of meals just for myself. But quinoa is a complete protien and I can only imagine how filling this salad is!
