Salmon and Feta Quiche

I love quiche and this did not disappoint.  The flavors are strong, so you wouldn't want to serve it to just anybody.  But I thought it was yummy and could be enjoyed for any meal.

adapted from this recipe
1 pie crust
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium purple onion, thinly sliced
6 ounces cooked salmon (I used a pouch of boneless, skinless meat that will probably be found where the tuna is located)
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
4 large eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup cream
1/2 tsp dried dill (I would use more next time)
1 tsp lemon zest
salt and pepper, to your liking

Preheat oven to 350.  Heat oil in a small skillet.  Add onions and cook a couple minutes.  Remove from heat.  Whisk eggs in a medium bowl.  Whisk in milk, cream, dill, lemon zest, salt and pepper.

Start filling the pie crust with the onions covering the bottom.  Next put down half the salmon and feta.  Pour half of the egg mixture over the salmon and cheese.  Lay down the remaining salmon and cheese and pour the remaining egg mixture over that.  Transfer to oven.  Bake until just set in the center, 45-60 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes to let settle before serving.
