GREEK (light) FOOD

August 20, 2011

Huh so this year I was in Greece and one thing that I loved there was food. They have good food!! :) I bought a cooking book ( I couldn`t resist ) , and I`m using it :) I`m sharing 2 recipes that are super simple and really good (and you dont really need a book for it :D ) .  Probably you`ve all tasted greek salad or tzatziki before, but if you are one of those who never did it, do it now!
 Ive shared this two (most known I think ) dishes because it`s summer here (30-34 degrees), so light food is the best ;) Next time we will talk about spinach pie (burek) & veal in tomato sauce with baked potatoes..mmmm

Bon appetit.


 GREEK SALAD
 
 SERVES 6
  • 4 firm ripe tomatoes

  • 1/2 cup olive oil 
  • Sprinkling of oregano

Wash the tomatoes, peek the cucumber and cut into slices. Cut the onion and pepper in rings. Place them in a salad bowl, add the olives, capers, oregano and salt, and mix lightly. Slice the feta chees, place it on top of the salad and dress with olive oil.

 TZATZIKI
