Email & A Recipe: Mediterranean Egg Salad

My Mom sure does know what I like. She clipped this recipe out of a newspaper for me.
She knows how I love Mediterranean dishes.

This came from Three Many Cooks, but I put my own twist on it.

My Aunt Becky was in the area for an unexpected visit (I won't go into detail), and I whipped this up to take to my Grandmother's house for a light lunch.

Just so you know, this was very much loved by everyone that tried it, and the recipe has to be emailed to my Aunt.

The Mediterranean flavors are amazing.

You just put everything in a bowl and mix. Easy Peezy!!

I served mine in pita bread with sliced tomatoes.

What was my twist? Feta cheese, of course.
Can you have a Mediterranean dish without feta cheese? I think not!!
This will definitely be made again, and the recipe is going in my fire-proof safe....

Mediterranean Egg Salad

10 large boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
3/4 c. minced red onion
3/4 c. Feta cheese (tomato/basil)
2/3 c. extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 c. pitted Kalamata olives, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 TBS lemon juice
2 tsp. minced fresh oregano
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl.
Serve in pita bread, or whatever kind of bread you like.

"Is not wisdom found among the aged? Does not long life bring understanding? To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are His. What He tears down cannot be rebuilt; the man He imprisons cannot be released."
Job 12:12-14

Job said, "Wisdom will die with you." He also went on to say that his friends didn't need to explain God to him - they were saying nothing he didn't already know (12:7-9, 13:1-2). Job's friends completely misunderstood the reason for his suffering. He was certain that his friends' reasoning were both narrow-minded and incorrect. Once again Job called for God to give him an answer (13:3).
What is our answer when we cannot be rebuilt? We call to God.
