Honey Tips

Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.


Preheat oven to 375&deg. Line a large baking sheet with foil. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl toss potatoes with olive oil and rosemary. Place potatoes onto prepared pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake 45-50 minutes until golden brown, turning potatoes after 30 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add green beans and cook 3-5 minutes until just crisp tender. Drain and run under cold water. Drain well.
In a small bowl whisk together all dressing ingredients.
Combine potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, olives and basil in a large bowl. Just before serving add dressing. Toss. Sprinkle feta cheese over salad and serve.
