Farmer`s Market Salad with Homemade Honey-Mustard Dressing

Farmer`s Market Salad Farmer`s Market Salad

Farmer`s markets are the best place to shop for seasonal and local foods. I love talking to the vendors, the smell of fresh fruits, flowers, vegetables & herbs. – Like a small adventure for the senses! Today, I took a stroll to the local farmer`s market and bought fresh veggies for a homemade garden salad. I added a Mediterranean touch with some sweet figs, fried feta cheese (so delicious!) and topped everything with a homemade honey-mustard dressing. I hope you enjoy this nourishing farmer`s market salad!

Fresh Vegetables

from the Local Farmer `s Market

Ingredients Salad

  • Green lettuce
  • Tomatoes (Red, orange, green)
  • Local arugula
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 fig
  • Pickled small red bell peppers
  • Cress
  • Chopped parsley

Honey-Mustard Dressing

  • 1 tbsp. mustard
  • 2 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • Salt & pepper

Fried Feta Cheese

  • 2 Slices of Feta Cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • Some Flour
  • Olive oil for the pan

This is one of my favorite recipes that shows how tasty simple dishes can be. You need 2 slices of feta cheese (thumb-width), I bought fresh ones from the farmers market, but you can also use a packaged feta. Use 2 low bowls, fill one with some flour and the other with a beaten egg. Dip the feta cheese first in egg, then in flour and fry it on both sides in a pan (with some olive oil) until golden brown – about 3 minutes on each side.

Prepare the salad by putting all veggies on a plate. Add the figs and the fried feta cheese. Before serving, sprinkle some fresh cress and top the garden salad with homemade honey-mustard dressing.
