Fresh Figs, Israeli Feta & Arugula Salad with Balsamic Honey Vinaigrette

My friend Jessica told me to make this salad using Israeli Feta cheese. It's amazing. I don't really like feta, but this one is different. It's full-flavored, creamy, and not overly salty. It's made from sheep and goat's milk. It goes perfectly with fresh figs, the spicy, slightly bitter arugula and the sweet honey balsamic dressing.

Roasted Red & Golden Beets with Sunflower Seeds & Arugula

This Roasted Red & Golden Beets with Sunflower Seeds & Arugula has the perfect balance of sweet and tangy. The maple sherry vinaigrette is transcendent. The original recipe calls for fresh chervil, which I could not find. I plan on growing my own.

Freekeh Salad with Apricots, Grilled Halloumi & Zucchini

Freekeh is young green wheat that has been toasted and cracked. Halloumi is a Cypriot semi-hard, unripened brined cheese made from a mixture of goat's and sheep's milk, and sometimes also cow's milk. It has a high melting point and so can easily be fried or grilled.
