Hear me out, I know the Greeks usually don't have salad with chicken, but adding some protein to my favourite Greek salad recipe is a great way to have a healthy lunch. I always like to buy grocery store rotisserie chicken and take out the bones immediately when I get home. After that, I chop up some tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, green peppers, olives, and feta cheese and mix it in with the chicken. For the dressing, I make a very simple dressing with olive oil, lemon, and sometimes balsamic vinegar. For the seasoning I use cracked black pepper, coarse sea salt, and of course fresh oregano! Let me know what you think of this :)


Good ide to add chicken to the salad. I know Greeks don't normally do it, but I love salad with protein!

What desserts are served at Greek weddings?

Are there any desserts that are specific to Greek weddings? I’m going to a Greek wedding this summer and I would love to know waht tasty treats are on the menu so I know what to look forward to! 😋

Strawberry covered ekmek kadaïfi

This dessert is one of the best I’ve ever made! It’s a simple ekmek kadaïfi recipe that I found from google and I topped it off with pistachios and strawberries. It tastes just as good as it tastes.

What is the best Greek food to sneak in vegetables for kids?

My kids absolutely hate eating vegetables and I am always looking for ways to sneak in more and more vegetables. Does anyone have good Greek dish recommendations that have vegetables that don't taste too strong? Or existing recipes where I can add small pieces of veggies? I would really appreciate it, I am not the best chef but I am trying to switch it up these days and keep things healthy!

How to spruce up your leftover keftedes!

I always find myself having leftover meatballs or keftedes need a bit of sprucing up the next day. What I like to do is make a tomato sauce with wine, and heat up the meatballs with the sauce so that they soak it up and don't stay dry. This is the recipe for the sauce

- sauté one onion and two garlic cloves with olive oil
- add half a jar of tomato paste
-add cumin, black pepper, ground clove and basil
-after all the spices have been cooked, add one cup of red wine
-once the wine is bubbling, add one jar of tomato sauce
-cook for about 20 minutes over medium heat
