A Fresh Take on Easy, Spring Recipes
Winter is coming to an end and the transition from oh-so-comforting recipes to fresh Spring flavours is upon is! Our Krinos Feta is the perfect pairing for these vibrant, tasty, and super easy to prepare recipes featured this month – which one will be your favourite?
This is not your ordinary grilled chicken wrap! In less than 30 minutes you can transform a standard grilled chicken by adding some spring freshness and crunch with our Chicken & Green Apple Wraps with Feta! Chicken breast is seasoned with salt, pepper, and a touch of cayenne pepper (optional) and cooked through in a skillet. Once cooled, the chicken is sliced into strips. Next is to make your own spicy mayo – simply mix your mayo of choice, salt, pepper, cumin and chili power in a bowl. Spread your homemade mayo onto warmed tortillas, and place arugula, diced green apple, the chicken and as much feta s you like, then roll into a wrap and serve! Want to add an extra level of fun for the kiddos this March break? Create a make-your-own wrap bar and have them fill their own tortillas with the toppings of their choice!
We couldn’t leave out one of our absolute favourites, our Air Fryer Broccoli & Feta Salad. Quick, delicious and super-satisfying, this salad brings the flavour! To begin, preheat your air fryer to 300 ºF, chop broccoli in about 4 cups of florets and toss with olive oil, salt, and garlic powder. Add 1 tbsp of water to the bottom of the air fryer and transfer the seasoned broccoli to the basket of the air fryer. Air fry for 5-7 minutes, pulling the basket out once to shake to ensure an even cook. You’ll want the broccoli to be tender, with a little bit of bite and crispy golden-brown edges on some pieces. Meanwhile cook pearl cous cous in water, olive oil and salt until tender (according to package directions). Once drained, return to your saucepan, and toss with olive oil to coat. Then toast creamy, crunchy pine nuts until golden for that extra level of crunch and flavour. The dressing is a super-simple combination of lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, salt, and grated garlic. The air fried broccoli and cous cous are then tossed with the dressing and the pine nuts, parsley and feta are gently added in to finish. Serve at room temperature and enjoy all of the amazing flavours and textures in this salad!
These are just a few of our favourite recipes to welcome in the Spring season with vibrant colours, lots of freshness and our forever favourite flavour-enhancer – feta cheese!
