Feta Giveaway

You probably saw it last month, but there was an abundance of feta in everyone's salads.  Athenos was promoting their feta as a salad topper (and an excellent one at that)!  Hopefully you're not too sick of it yet, as I've got a chance for you to win some goodies.


But first, a recipe idea!  This was my take on Deb's eggplant salad toasts.  To the roasted eggplant and red wine vinaigrette, I added some chickpeas and farro and topped it with the feta and scallions.   Loved the salty bite of feta with the chewy farro and creamy chickpeas and eggplant!!   This would certainly be adaptable to a variety of grain-vegetable combinations, too, so go wild :)   If you're interested,  I recall making the amount of eggplant called for in her recipe, cooking up 1/2c farro, and adding 3/4-1c chickpeas to make two servings.



Would you like a Fit & Fresh Salad Pod and free feta??   To enter, all you have to do is let me know what flavor is your favorite pairing for feta.  I'll pick a winner at noon Sunday Sept 19, so you have a week to enter!

(I did not receive anything from Athenos to promote this giveaway, the feta used in creating this recipe was purchased with my own $$)

I could never tire of feta. Ever. My favorite flavor pairing...right now it's feta in lemony dishes...like my zucchini crudo or PW's Baked Lemon Pasta. It adds extra tang, I think. And apparently I really like tang.

I love Feta and arugula--the Feta's creaminess takes the bite out of the arugula!

This may be controversial, but I like feta with shrimp, despite the seafood/cheese thing.

I love feta and watermelon - yum!

Lisa (bakebikeblog) said...

now THAT looks like my kinda salad - yum!

Kerstin said...

Mmm, eggplant with chickpeas and feta sounds so yummy. I think an easier question would be what don't you like feta with, haha. If I had to pick one I'd go with red peppers.

Heather said...

We love feta in our salads, however, Jlynch6341's use of feta sounds wonderful (and a great dinner idea for this week!)

I love feta paired with hummus, red peppers, and warm pita triangles...I discovered this at Tavern on Broad in Philadelpia and have reinvented it at my house for yummy appetizers when entertaining..dipping the pita with hummus and adding some feta on top makes a sweet savory taste!

Bridget said...

Your salad combination sounds delicious, love the idea!
One of my favorite feta items is this dip I get at a restaurant on Martha's VIneyard...its a whipped Feta Rouille and as soon as I figure out that pairing I'll let you know ;)

I always love feta! Especially on salads!

Elina (Healthy and Sane) said...

Yeah there was definitely a bit of a feta overload in the blog world for a little while. I still continued to eat it though. :)
I really love pairing feta with fruit. Today I'm adding it to a roasted beet + roasted red pepper wrap for lunch. :D

how fun!

I LOVE feta with bacon and fresh peaches. Delicious!

Biz said...

I absolutely love feta cheese - I make a chicken gyros and add it to that dish - love the salty bite of it!

Hope you had a great weekend!

Jess said...

Yes I want free feta! I like it with hummus and tomatoes.

madeline said...

My favorite thing to do with feta is pair it with a salad made of arugula, beets, and toasted pecans!

elra said...

What a wonderful giveaway Shannon!

Cara said...

Ooh, I would love that little salad guy! How could one not love feta... I have the hubs sitting next to me so I had to ask for a little help in picking a favorite. We're going with black bean and feta tacos. Not a completely intuitive combination, but I swear... it's delish!

Monet said...

Just found your blog tonight...and what a fun giveaway this is! I love feta with crisp granny smith apples and thin slices of bread. Thanks for sharing this with us!
