The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

After having a bite of the Chipotle Chicken Tacos my coworker brought for lunch a couple of weeks ago, this was my dinner two days later.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Greek Cucumber Bites

Cucumber Feta Bites

Cucumber Feta Bites make for a healthy, easy and tasty appetizer. Can't beat that, can you?!

I made them for the Super Bowl, but they would work well for the holidays or any gathering really, they make for great finger food. They're also an easy appetizer to bring to a party, because they don't have to be heated up.

I'm always looking for healthier appetizer options so when I saw Katie's Cucumber Feta Rolls over at Good Life Eats they definitely jumped out at me. I ended up making bites instead of rolls since they would be easier to slice up and I also wouldn't have to deal with toothpicks. You know me, I'm always looking for the easy way out! A mandoline works great for the slicing, but since the cucumbers don't need to be sliced super thin or uniformly it's very easy to do with a knife too.

Below is the recipe, I think you'll be happy about how few steps are involved. You'll be so happy, you're probably going to make them this weekend. 

Ingredients
2 cucumbers
6 oz crumbled feta
1/4 cup greek yogurt
1/4 cup chopped sundried tomatoes
12-15 pitted kalamata olives, chopped
1 tablespoon dill, chopped
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions
Slice cucumbers into about 1/4" slices, varying thickness depending on your preference.

Mix together feta, yogurt, sundried tomatoes, olives, dill, lemon juice and pepper. Mashing up feta with the back of spoon or fork, if needed. 

Place approximately 1 heaping teaspoon of feta mixture on each cucumber slice. Enjoy!

Or you could have just followed the almost same recipe in Food and Wine Mag from the Winter 2011. (available at all LCBO stores for free) It came out just before you posted this recipe......hmmm.

Oh really, that's one of the food magazines I subscribe to, but I guess I missed that recipe! Too many delicious food magazines to look through these days. As I mentioned in my post, I found the recipe idea over at Good Life Eats, inspired by her Cucumber Feta Rolls. I hope you enjoy the recipe!
