Zucchini, mint and feta fritters

I like to make crispy fritters in the oven using hardly any added fats. I lightly coat the fritters and flour and brush them with olive oil to make them crispier.

Two different Watermelon Salads ….. with identical ingredients !

I always admire photos of beautifully arranged plated watermelon chequerboards and I am trying it out with a combination of avocado and feta, topped with capers and mint. There is quite a bit of wastage after the cutting process so I am making a second salad using exactly the same ingredients tossed in a bowl. I am still not sure which one I prefer. … Read More Two different Watermelon Salads ….. with identical ingredients !
