With the holiday weekend kicking off, here are a few #FoodFriday recipes from “The Cookbook According to St. Paul’s.

We recently rediscovered this great 1979 cookbook created by the The Paulist Women’s Club* at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Community, the parish served by Paulist Fathers in Los Angeles,

These recipes would be perfect for a BBQ. Have a wonderful and safe 4th of July weekend!

Greek Summer Salad
5 tomatoes, cut into wedges
¼ lb. feta cheese
Capers, to taste
