Athenos Summer Salad Month

July is here and it is blazing hot in Utah. This month we will mostly grill out and eat salads to keep our house cool. Don’t worry, I am sure I will still turn on the oven to bake a few treats:) Salads will be a staple though. During the month of July, I am participating in ATHENOS “Summer Salad Month.”

Make a Change for the Feta program encourages people to top their salads with feta instead of cheddar cheese. That is easy for me, because feta is my favorite. Feta has one-third less fat and 30 percent few calories than cheddar-I love that it is a healthier option. I also love the creaminess, color, and flavor it adds to any salad.

So get ready for a fantastic feta salad month. I have a lot of great salads to share with you! I will also be doing a Atheno’s giveaway every Friday, starting next week, so make sure you tune in! It’s going to be a fun month!

What are your 4th of July plans? We are going hiking and hanging out at our friends pool. I plan on making  lemon raspberry bars and my easy pasta salad-this time I am using feta cheese though:) Here are a few other 4th of July menu ideas:

Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips
Strawberry, Mango, Jicama Salad
Blueberry Lemon Loaf Cake
Lemon Buttermilk Shortcakes with Berries

Have a happy and safe 4th of July!

I have partnered with ATHENOS Feta to serve as one of ten ATHENOS Change for the Feta Bloggers. I am compensated for my time commitment to the program, which includes blogging about my cooking experiences with ATHENOS Feta. I have also been compensated for the food purchased for my Change for the Feta – “Summer Salad Month” creations. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.
