ICM & My Daughter’s Favorite Salad

Sharing is caring!

As I have mentioned several times, my daughter has a very picky palate.  I so want her to get over her fear of food and enjoy it!!  There are not a lot of veggies I can get her to eat, but she does love this salad that I throw together to go with pasta, soup, or just to eat it by itself.  If you like feta cheese, you’ll love this. 

My Daughter’s Favorite Salad

1 bag romaine hearts, chopped

1 container feta cheese, crumbled

1 yellow bell pepper, diced

1 onion, sliced into thin rings

1/2  cup olive oil

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1 tbsp dried tarragon

1 tsp Salt

1 tsp Pepper

In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, tarragon and salt and pepper.  Pour the romaine in a large salad bowl, and throw in the feta, onions and bell pepper.  Give the dressing another whisk or two, then pour over the salad.  Combine thoroughly with salad tongs.

Now onto ICM….

This weeks ingredient for Challenge Monday is Fennel!

I’ve never cooked with or even had fresh fennel – only fennel seeds, so I’m excited about this.  Here are a few little tidbits about this interesting little veggie:

  • It is full of antioxidents.
  • A great source of vitamin C, fiber, potassium and folate.
  • It’s closely related to parsley, carrots, dill and coriander.


Should be an interesting challenge!!   Also, we have a new blogger who just joined us!  She is Tiffany at Como Water.  Check out her site!!  Her blog focuses on vegan and vegetarian cuisine.  Check back with us on Monday to see our recipes….


And Love It Too!

    I love fennel! It’s so fresh and crispy. My grandmother used to serve it between meals as a palate cleanser. I am always looking for a good salad recipe. Definitely have to try this!
