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:
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.
