Melon Ribbons Salad With Blackberries and Feta

Can you think of something more refreshing than a melon salad in a hot summer day? The sweetness, citrus and saltiness from this combination makes this dish very satisfying. I choose  Bulgarian Feta over Greek because of the law content of sodium. But again its a matter of choice.

Broiled Shishito Peppers

What the heck are Shishito Peppers? These small, mild Japanese peppers are great for roasting, pan-frying and grilling.

Lentil Meatless Meatballs
