Greek feta chicken salad

Hi, everybody! Let us today learn how to prepare easy Greek feta chicken salad. Feta (Greek: φέτα, féta, “slice”) is a brined curd white cheese made in Greece from sheep’s milk, or from a mixture of sheep and goat’s milk. Similar brined white cheeses produced in Europe are often made partly or wholly of cow’s milk, and they are also sometimes called feta. It is a crumbly aged cheese, commonly produced in blocks, and has a slightly grainy texture. Feta is used as a table cheese, as well as in salads and pastries. Most notable is its use in the popular phyllo-based dishes spanakopita (“spinach pie”) and tyropita (“cheese pie”), or served with some olive oil or olives and sprinkled with aromatic herbs such as oregano and mint. Recently, researchers suggested that feta cheese can help in several medical conditions such as protects against cancer, supports bone health, boosts immune system, maintain a healthy gut, prevents headaches, including migraines, protects your eyes, and part of a natural treatment for anemia. Iknow that a lot let us have that delicious salad.

Spanish Omelet

Hola!, an omelet is a dish made from beaten eggs fried with butter or oil in a frying pan. It is quite common for the omelet to be folded around a filling such as cheese, vegetables, meat, or some combination of the above. Whole eggs or sometimes only egg whites are beaten with a small amount of milk, cream, or even water. Spanish omelet is the English name for a traditional dish from Spanish cuisine called tortilla española, tortilla de patatas or tortilla de papas. It is an omelet made with eggs and potatoes, sometimes also with onion and/or chives garlic; fried in oil and often served cold as an appetizer. It is part of the cuisine of Spain and many South American countries, especially those in the area of the Rio de la Plata.

Mediterranean Peach Jam

Hi, well this is one of my favorite summer fruits, nothing worth than a cold peach on a hot day in summer LOL. The peach is a deciduous tree native to the region of Northwest China between the Tarim Basin and the north slopes of the Kunlun Shan mountains, where it was first domesticated and cultivated. The specific epithet persica refers to its widespread cultivation in Persia, whence it was transplanted to Europe. It belongs to the genus Prunus which includes the cherryapricotalmond, and plum, in the rose family. Peaches filled with nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin C, carotenoids, vitamin E, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, vitamin B6, folate, pantothenic acid, calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, manganese, phosphorous, zinc, copper and are a good source of dietary fiber. Following is the way that Mediterranean people follow to make some fresh peach jam to use it over a long time.

Stromboli

Hello!, I love stromboli at morning, taste wonderful, and easy to prepare. Salami and Marinara with a hint of basil and bread you will be in another world, Yum!. Stromboli is a type of turnover filled with cheeses and salami,  or vegetables. The dough used is either Italian bread dough or pizza dough. A stromboli is somewhat similar to a calzone. A stromboli is usually made by rolling up the dough that has been topped with pizza ingredients such as Marinara sauce and then baking it. A calzone is crescent-shaped, and a stromboli is usually shaped like a long cylinder. Let us have some Stromboli

Focaccia Italian Bread

This freshly baked bread will fill your home with its pleasing and inviting fragrance. Even kids love to keep a piece of focaccia to have them in the morning. The primary difference between focaccia and pizza is the amount of time the dough is allowed to proof. In the case of focaccia it is significantly a longer period, whereas most varieties of pizza are baked shortly after the dough has been tossed or rolled resulting in a thinner, flat and more flexible crust.
