Fresh Greek Appetizer

June 29, 2014

Happy  Summer Everyone!!!  My precious Mom had to undergo open heart surgery in early May and, thankfully, she is doing wonderfully well.  So many prayers were offered up on her behalf and, the prayers were answered.  Praise!  Between this big event with Mom and, the end of school… blogging has been a bit derailed, however, I am excited to catch up today and….dying for you to try this super FRESH and EASY Greek appetizer.  I have made this 3-4 times this summer and, it is so healthy, easy and ADDICTIVE!   A big shout out to my dear friend Stephan….she shared this recipe with me last summer.  YUM!

I made this a few weeks ago for my tennis team ‘end-of-season’ celebration.  The ladies on my team are SO DEAR and, I invited them over to thank them for playing on my team this spring.   We had a wonderful evening of visiting, eating…. and talking all things “tennis”.
