We are finally home. Before leaving California we could not pass up the opportunity to pick the last tomatoes nicely red and plump from the vine. The zucchini were just the perfect size. My son and I loved filling our cooler with our fresh loot, after all we were driving. We got home and could not wait to have another fresh salad, well at least I could not wait… my son… well.. that is another story.
Romaine salad in hand, tomatoes and prawn, voila dinner was served.
I love dinners like that…. Bon Appetit.
Tonight’s July 28, 2011 dinner:
Summer Salad with Prawns, Feta cheese and Tomatoes
Fresh Peaches with Vanilla Ice Cream
SUMMER SALAD WITH PRAWNS, FETA CHEESE AND TOMATOES
Already Cooked Prawns
Feta Cheese, crumbled
3 tablespoon Oil
1 tablespoon vinegar
Juice of 1 lemon
Remove and clean the tail of the prawns. Place the prawns in a bowl and squeeze half the lemon over it and let it stand for 10 – 15 minutes, turning occasionally. When ready to assemble with the salad discard the lemon juice.
In a large bowl combine the cleaned salad cut up to desired pieces size, the prawns, and the feta cheese. Cut the tomatoes and remove all the seeds and white part and add to bowl. In another small bowl prepare the vinaigrette with the oil, vinegar and salt.
When nicely blended add to the salad bowl. Mix well. Squeeze at the last minute the remainder half of lemon over the salad.
