I'm really not a cook.... and believe me... I don't have an ounce of the talent I need to turn this into a foodie blog...but...

I have to tell you about this.
Because it will make your summer.
A friend of ours brought it over to my parent's house. 
And the rest is history.

I like eating. I sometimes like to cook. I sometimes like to bake. 
I like easy things that don't have a bazillion million ingredients. 
Gets me all confused. 
I try to keep it healthy. 
Except when it comes to these right here...
I buy a package.
And I sneak a few frozen raw cookie dough pieces every once in a while. 
They never see the oven. Poor guys.
Well... one night I fell asleep before my husband and he came in and started feeling my stomach.
"What the heck are you doing???"
"I wanted to see if I could feel the cookie dough in there." 


The recipe. 

2 cans of chick peas. drained. 
about 3/4 cup of crumbled feta cheese.
1 red pepper. chopped.
1 red onion. chopped.
one head of broccoli. (just the good stuff... you know... the stuff that looks like the tree tops). chopped.
(you can see my expertise lingo coming out. I try to contain it)
about 1/3 cup of Newman's Own Caesar Dressing. (or more) 
and if you like greek olives... dice a few of those. throw 'em in. 

I don't know what it's called. 
But it's good. 


  1. Just copied this recipe and printed it out... It looks like a perfect side... especially for HOT Texas weather... I'm makin' it! Thanks!

  2. Mmmm, I'm a maniac for bleu cheese. Never liked feta, but I could down just about anything with the bleu. Sounds yummy! I'm no foodie either, but isn't it fun every now and then to break out of your blogging box??

  3. yummmm. cold summer salads like this are so up my alley.

  4. Now this recipe screams Summer and I can't wait to make it.
