    This looks so easy and delicious! I’d probably switch out feta cheese for mozzarella because I’m not a huge feta fan.

      I use a recipe almost identical to this with shredded (not grated) Parmesan and it is fabulous! I also cheat and use a light italian salad dressing instead of making it myself. But I love feta so def gonna try it this way!

      You could definitely use boconcini. That would be delicious! 🙂

    Wow! This sounds (and looks) delicious! I’m bookmarking it 😀

    I’m the same way during summer, I avoid the stove at all costs! Salads and cold meals are the best during this time.
