Greek Salad in a Bread Bowl

For the April 2011 Daring Cooks Edible Containers challenge
Source

The bowl from Renata’s site

Ingredients

- cucumbers
- tomatoes
- red leaf lettuce
- dill
- olives
- feta cheese
- walnuts
- lemon juice
- olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
For the bowl all the ingredients and instructions are on Renata’s site.
For the salad, chop the veggies and add the seasoning :-).

Afterthoughts
- First of all, I really LOVE the edible container idea! Thanks, Renata, for the challenge and for all the creative suggestions!
- I tried many different bowls, but I guess this was not my month – they all fell apart. The bread bowl was the only survival :-). I can’t wait to see the posts of the other Daring cooks with their recipes!

Blog-checking lines: Renata of Testado, Provado & Aprovado! was our Daring Cooks’ April 2011 hostess. Renata challenged us to think “outside the plate” and create our own edible containers! Prizes are being awarded to the most creative edible container and filling, so vote on your favorite from April 17th to May 16th at http://thedaringkitchen.com!

This is beautiful! I love a dish that you can eat- literally! Great interpretation of the challenge, you've executed it very elegantly.

Your edible bowl came out perfect looking! I would love a bite of the bowl with each bite of salad, or even eat the salad then break off pieces of the bowl afterwards.

Fantastic job on the challenge :D

Nice job on this DC challenge! I'm still mulling over what to do for my DB challenge.

I, too, love the idea of the edible container, but found the execution a bit tricky. This salad looks divine, though, and the bread bowl is the perfect compliment!

Kate said...

That salad looks really cool and yummy! That edible soup/salad bowl looks really tasty!

FamilySpice said...

This looks stunning! You did a fabulous job!

Allie said...

This looks so beautiful! Definitely a winning recipe. And I can't believe how much they really look like actual bowls. I am sure it tastes just as great and is a loter healthier than fried shells that they serve salads in sometimes.

Sorry about the other containers, I have had quite a few edible container ideas that didn't work also, but I always take them as a lesson learned. Your final dish looks amazing with the Greek salad (yum!) and your photo is so beautiful, professional! Thanks so much for participating!
