Recipes from Past Events

As mentioned yesterday, we are going to post a food recipe along with the month's drink recipe. Here's this month's recipe, as well as last month's.

Watermelon Feta Salad - July Favorite Recipe
2 cups watermelon cubes
2 cups feta (haloumi or kasseri would also work)
Red pepper flakes

Combine watermelon and feta in a bowl, stir carefully. Add spices to taste, stir again. Serve immediately.

And from our Celebrating New Orleans gathering at Stone Manhattan's place, here's another:

New Orleans Rocket Salad - June Favorite Recipe
Baby Arugula/Rocket (lots)
Grilled Vidalia Onions (couple medium)
Crumbled Goat Cheese (lots!)
Spicy/Sweet Pecans (lots of these too!)
Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar

Take a big bowl, and fill it with arugula. Drizzle the salad leaves with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and dust with salt & pepper. Slice thinly, and grill (on the stovetop in a grill pan is fine) a couple of medium Vidalia onions. While still warm, chop up the grilled onion, add a little salt and pepper, a little olive oil, and add to the bowl of salad. Add crumbled goat cheese and heated, chopped sweet/spicy pecans (Ms. Manhattan got hers at Trader Joe's). Mix/toss and serve immediately.
