Tomato, Feta and Caramelized Onion Tart

I have always been a fan of tomato and feta based snacks. One of my favorite sandwiches is a fresh pita stuffed with tomatoes, feta cheese and basil. This tart is the fancy, guest approved version of that. I serve this with a salad and it makes a great summertime dinner. Don't go too heavy on the onions or the tart may become soggy. This tart is best straight out of the oven (plus a few minutes of cool down time). If you reheat it try avoiding the microwave.

Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad

I was looking for a salad that would be easy to transport and wouldn't get soggy if I made it ahead of time. I was bringing food to a friend's party and didn't have time the day of to do anything that required more than five minutes. Luckily, my mom's friend told me about this salad that she loves serving during the summer. I've had this as a main course before when I wasn't very hungry, but it goes great with any BBQ basics.

The dressing used in this salad can be altered for your preferences. I tend to like it on the creamy side and use more yogurt than my mom's friend. If you like the citrus kick feel free to add more lemon. I have also made this without the cranberries and nuts and have enjoyed that too. This salad will still be crunchy and delicious the next day.
