I fell in love with Lisa Davies’ delicious recipes the moment I read her blog This Little Piggy Went to The Farmer’s Market and after I met her, I knew I wanted her delicious recipes on Barista Kids. Thankfully, she liked me too and agreed and that was the start of our What’s For Dinner? series. Every two weeks, Lisa shares a delicious dinner that she makes for her family: two adorable twin girls, she calls The Ladies™ and her husband.

On Saturday, August 6 , Lisa will compete at NYC’s Summer Streets Healthy Living Cook-Off 2011 in the Best Grilled Vegetarian Salad competition with two other contestants. Lisa’s entry is a Grilled Peach and Feta Salad. God I love her recipes. This Greek girl loves feta and peaches.

I think she’s got this one.

Best of luck Lisa!

    I made this salad on Sunday. I liked it. My husband liked it. My kids liked it. Success! It’s a good, good salad.

    I’ll make it again but I think I need to turn the grill higher and slice the peaches thicker b/c some of the peaches got just a wee bit mushy. I was aiming for a firmer peach with those lovely caramelized grill marks.

    Glad it worked out Tudlow! They should be about 1/2″ thick and use firm ones as if they are ripe they will go to mush!

    Good luck, Lisa!

I'm struck by how much attention is being paid to the details of a parking lot, as opposed to the attention paid to the future impact of the monstrous projects being planned.
