Good Friday

It’s Friday, and a good one too.  Literally, today is my Good Friday.  I am spending the day working from home, and then am heading to church tonight with my parents for our Good Friday Epitaphios service.  Do I have any fellow Orthodox Fitness & Feta readers out there?

Sweet Strawberry Salsa

In last night’s post, I mentioned I was snacking on some Triscuits with strawberry salsa.  On Tuesday night, Tim and I grilled up some fresh cod for dinner and topped it with a new strawberry salsa recipe.  As part of the Around the Plate Writer’s Club, I volunteered to write a guest post on a recipe using strawberries.  Strawberry salsa is what Tim & I decided would be something new and sweet (literally) to try this week.


  • 1 pint strawberries
  • 1 roasted red pepper
  • 1/2 a medium yellow onion
  • 2.5 Tbsp fresh cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 jalapeño – optional


For best results, prepare and leave in the fridge overnight.

  1. Dice strawberries, red pepper and yellow onion.
  2. Chop cilantro.
  3. Mix everything together and season to taste with salt and pepper.

This salsa recipe:  Easy, quick, tasty, unique, colorful, and perfect for spring.  Also perfect for snacking!

To grill the cod (1 pound), just brush the fillets with extra virgin olive oil, and then coat with salt and pepper to taste.  Place fish on a hot grill, cook on one side for about 3-4 minutes, flip and cook for another 4 minutes or until flaky.
