Chick Pea Salad

Inspired by the weather being extremely pleasant at this time of year, we decided to take the kids the park for a picnic supper. I searched for an easy-to-prepare dish that would travel well and found this at Cook Sister’s blog. I had hoped to make it using the basil as she did, but our basil plants are a little skimpy right now so I had to improvise. I used my vegetable peeler and added some very thin slices of zucchini to the salad and Daughter tossed in some black olives instead of green. On the side, we packed sliced tomatoes in balsamic vinegar. The picnic was a success and by the time we sat down to eat the feta cheese on the salad had become even more creamy and this just added to its deliciousness.

It’s good to get out of the kitchen and have some fun!
