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
  1. CHICKEN SALAD
  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
  10. GREEK SALAD
  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!

  • Here is some advice for all my SINGLE LADIES out there! 
Earlier today, I had a discussion with some younger co-workers of mine and I feel like you may relate and probably need to be told this so keep reading! One of the girls stated that she’s never had a good relationship and wanted to meet a nice guy. 
Another girl made a remark about the kind of guys she dated when she was her age and then asked me what kind of relationships I had when I was the other girl’s age and I told them the truth. I dated a very nice guy for 4 1/2 years when I was her age. At one point, I honestly thought that we would marry someday, but I was so young/still trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted my adult life to be like. Eventually we didn’t agree on the same things and grew apart. It ended well and I wish him well. Later after I had a few relationships, that also did not last and it was all for good reason. I feel like I was able to learn something from my past relationships that allowed me to be ready when I was meant to meet my husband which I have been married to for 10 years now. So the next time you look back at those past relationships and you’re looking for a nice guy, just know you’re one relationship closer to meeting the one and when you do you will know it and you will be ready for it! Just know your worth and never lower your standards because you feel like you have to to make it work. Always stay true to yourself because if you’re not, it will not be you they have fallen in love with. Like @arianagrande sings...Thank you, NEXT!

  • Lately, I’ve been reading a ton of wellness articles about the benefits of collagen powder and how women in their 30’s produce less collagen naturally which can start to effect your skin and so on. Ever since I read that. Ive been wanting to give it a try... The one I chose to put to the test is called Gym and Tonic and it’s a collagen protein powder by @tonicproducts 
I started adding 2 scoops into my blueberry banana smoothies in the mornings which has been so great because I’m guilty of never eating breakfast unless it’s brunch or brinner and I’m always rushing to get out the door and to work on time! 
Not only is it free of soy, dairy, gluten, and artificial hormones, but you can also rest assured that their ingredients have all been responsibly sourced. And here’s the bonus, it contains 18 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own which combined will help with hair, skin, nail growth, joint pain, and good gut health! Winning!

So glad I finally tried it, and I will def be adding it into my daily routine. 
P.S. I’ve shared a Mango Smoothie Pop recipe in my stories/highlights that this would be perfect in x beating the summer heat with a sweet treat! 😉
