  1. This was so good and what a refreshing salad for a hot summer afternoon. I prepared this with bow tie pasta as that is what I had on hand. I also steamed my green beans insted of blanching them, this is just a personal preference. The feta was a wonderful addition. Thanks so much for sharing this...
  2. Yummy, yummy! This is a great cold, summer salad! And one I don't have to worry about sharing! (I'm the only one here who likes shrimp and feta)
  3. I try not to give too many 5 stars but there is nothing that needs improving on this! I actually made it with ww penne(whole wheat)and lime juice, because it's what I had. Really bright tasting. Really good, refreshing. A keeper for sure. I am making this for Easter at my sisters'. Thanks!


I am a Christian wife and mother of 3 kids. Since my DH's high cholesterol, we've been eating better. I never used to like cooking. Since eating better, I've liked learning and preparing new recipes. My kids haven't reconciled themselves to the new eating yet. I grind my own grain and make all my own breads.?Working 2 hours a day in the local high school lunch room.??I am homeschooling my high schooler.? ?Also found out 1 child has multiple food allergies (wheat, dairy, tomato, chocolate, etc) and another is gluten sensitive. So, we just started (July 09) eating gluten and dairy free. I've been busy with getting our house market ready, even though it's not the best time for that.?
