Happy Thursday!  Can you really believe it is Thursday already?  Hard to believe I know… so much going on these days that it’s all a blur.  So before we get into the food – I thought I would give you an update on zesty gear sales.  They are not selling as fast I would have hoped but I realize that I need to get some more exposure and more reach.  If you are a blogger, feel free to mention it on your blog as it would be greatly appreciated.

Now onto the food..


I wanted something quick, fresh and spring like so I chose a simple salad with nice big chunks of feta cheese, topped off with a pungent balsamic vinaigrette.  It was easy to throw together and it works great as a side dish or even as a quick meal in a rush.


  • Fresh Romaine Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Chives
  • Cucumbers
  • 1/3 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 Cup Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbsp. Finely chopped fresh basil
  • 1 Tbsp. Mustard
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Prepare all vegetables and toss them in a bowl.
  2. Add vinegar, oil, basil, mustard, salt and pepper  to a large bottle and mix thoroughly.
  3. Drizzle with dressing or dress the empty bowl with the dressing and add the salad to the dressing.  Toss gently.
  4. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: When making dressings from scratch, make enough in advance and save it in the fridge for future use.  Just give it a good shake before using and it should last up to a few weeks.

I realize as I wrote the beginning of this post – it may come across as if I am begging you to buy zesty gear – I didn’t mean to portray that image.  I am just really focused on making a positive impact on the Food Bank as it is a great cause.  I just wanted to reiterate that.

I still have not decided what to do with the breakfast for 50 as of yet so if you didn’t have a chance to vote or leave your ideas in the comments please let me know.  I will soon have to make my mind up and prepare for that.  I hope you have a great Thursday and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Take care
