When we visit our place on the river we like to have a meal that we can fix quickly after arriving. We are usually eager to get the place feeling like home again and put something in our bellies after the drive.
All of the produce for our meal came from the Wild Boar Farm's farm stand between Stonewall and Fredericksburg. We picked up local honey, figs, pears and South Texas oranges, too!
Wild Boar Farms
21 Luckenbach Road
Fredericksburg, TX 78624
*Also, check out The Peach Basket in Fredericksburg. They have a great selection of natural, organic and gluten-free products. It is like Wheatsville and People's Pharmacy all rolled into one (minus the produce and deli). They even have things like brown rice tortillas, almond milk, gluten free cereal, natural cleaning products, bulk items and grassfed beef! It was a great find for us.
Greek Cucumber Salad
3-4 pickling cucumbers (extra crunch) or 1-2 slicing cucumbers
3 medium sized tomatoes (Wow! These were nice and sweet!)
Handful of purple basil (blossoms included)
Handful of dill
Purple onions sliced thinly
Dressing with lemon and Texas Olive Ranch olive oil (Make sure the ratio is 1 part vinegar to 3 parts oil and shake in a Mason jar)
Pure Luck's Feta Cheese would have gone great with this, but we sometimes go dairy free!
**You can also add cubed bread to this and it makes a great lunch!
Pull Apart Pita Bread with Babaganush and Grandma's hummus
From The Mediterranean Chef (see website for various locations) We loved the pull apart bread. Delicious!
We would have taken a photo of the Baklava from The Mediterranean Chef, but we were too busy enjoying it.
