    Yes-feta instead of blue cheese for me, though.

    made this recipe this week, so yummy.  However, I left the radishes out because I don't like them and used feta instead of blue cheese.

    This is one of my favorite recipes.  It's easy, this time of year it's also easy to find the ingredients at the local Farmer's Market.  But mostly because I love fresh & crunchy and it satisfies that for sure!
