THE SEASIDE FARMER’S MARKET

A DAY TRIP TO THE FARMER’S MARKET + CHICKEN SALAD SANDWICH

AND GREEK SIDE SALAD RECIPES


Today was farmer’s market day in a small beach community nearby called Seaside.  They have everything from local honey and fresh produce to handmade soaps and jewelry.  I love going to the farmer’s market when I get the chance and today I was on the hunt for feta but not just any feta, Greek marinated feta!

Here are a few shots from our outing…

After the market, we stopped by Central Square Records to say hello to friends and check out the new merchandise.  I ended up with “The Skeleton Dance” record, an old Disney favorite around Halloween and Jamie got one of their tie-dye t-shirts.

By the time we got home we were starved!  I managed to whip up some quick chicken salad sandwiches and a side of Greek salad with the feta we got.

The Chicken Salad recipe below is super simple and easy to throw together.  It’s definitely a staple in our household during the summer.  The Greek salad dressing was a tip I got from the owner’s of the Greek gyro stand at the Farmer’s Market.  I would have loved to have added some kalamata olives to it but unfortunately, we were all out.  The chips you see pictured are the “Heritage Blend” by Terra brand.  They offer tons of tasty vegetable chip options, if you haven’t tried them yet, you should pick some up the next time you’re at the grocery store.  (My favorite is the salty plantain.)

Ingredients

  2. 2-4 CHICKEN BREASTS, BOILED AND SHREDDED
  3. 2-3 SCALLIONS, DICED
  4. 2-3 CELERY STICKS, DICED
  5. 1/2 CUP MAYONNAISE
  6. SALT + PEPPER TO TASTE
  7. LETTUCE
  8. FRENCH HAMBURGER BUN, OR SLICED BREAD
  9. SLICED PROVOLONE CHEESE

  11. ROMAINE LETTUCE, CHOPPED
  12. 1 TOMATO, DICED
  13. 1/4 CUP RED ONION, DICED
  14. GREEK MARINATED FETA OR CRUMBLED FETA
  15. LEMON JUICE
  16. OLIVE OIL
  17. OREGANO
  18. SALT + PEPPER
Instructions
  1. CHICKEN SALAD
  2. MIX ALL INGREDIENTS IN A BOWL. ADD MORE MAYONNAISE IF NEEDED. I LIKE TO START OFF ADDING A LITTLE AT A TIME TO GET TO THE PERFECT CONSISTENCY. TOAST BREAD AND ADD A LITTLE MAYONNAISE ON EACH SIDE. TOP WITH LETTUCE AND PROVOLONE CHEESE. TOP WITH CHICKEN SALAD.
  3. GREEK SALAD
  4. ADD MARINATED FETA, TOMATOES, AND ONION TO ROMAINE LETTUCE. DRIZZLE WITH OLIVE OIL AND LEMON JUICE. ADD SALT, PEPPER, AND OREGANO TO TASTE.
Notes
  1. IF YOU HAVE A KITCHEN AID MIXER, THROW THE BOILED CHICKEN BREASTS IN WITH A BEATER PADDLE FOR ABOUT A MINUTE OR TWO ON MEDIUM SPEED. THE CHICKEN WILL BEGIN TO SHRED (NO MORE WAITING FOR IT TO COOL). WATCH CLOSELY AS YOU ARE DOING THIS BECAUSE IT CAN QUICKLY BEAT YOUR CHICKEN INTO A PULP!

  • All starry eyed over here 🤩 with this constellation print from @hello_strellas and how much it means to us! I was so excited to have our exact constellation of the day and time we got married almost 10 years ago arrive yesterday. 
It’s been such a wonderful reminder of where we started out as a new married couple and where we are now. Looking back on how much we’ve been able to accomplish together and how much our relationship has blossomed has made me realize how excited I am for our future together and all the adventures we have ahead of us! 
If you’re looking for a last minute Valentine’s gift for your special someone, this is hands down the most thoughtful gift out there! ✨
Check out my stories to see how to order this 💫 filled gift!
  • Road trippin to happiness or maybe just to my parents for a home cooked meal 😉 moral of the story here is to do what makes you happy! ❤️
  • Weekend Mood = SLOW DOWN! ⚠️ After a week of going 100 miles an hour, I think it’s time we slow down.... Have you heard of the art of slow living? February is the perfect time of year to start practicing. 1.| Take 5 minutes to enjoy your coffee or tea in the mornings instead of rushing to get out the door. 2.| Take time to organize your life so you have time to be present and enjoy the things you love. 3.| Take walks and reconnect with nature. This is a really great way to clear your head or find inspiration. 4.| Instead of turning the tv on right when you get home, turn on some music and allow yourself to decompress from the day. 5.| Don’t over-plan your day. That will only create stress and overwhelm. Learn to be flexible, give yourself a few of the most important tasks so that when they are complete you can treat yourself and enjoy the rest of your day doing something that will spark joy. 
Hope you found this helpful friends! Happy Friday! ❤️

  • Currently wishing I could smudge away this cold... if only it worked like that! 
Instead, I’ll be sipping hot tea and popping Vitamin C, but if you’re looking for a good read on “smudging” check out my latest blog post (link in bio) for some enlightenment on the subject.
