Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and place the fava pods inside. Let the pods cook while the water boils for five minutes. Transfer the pods to a strainer and rinse with cold water. Split open the pods, remove the fava beans, and place the beans in a serving bowl. Toss in the olives, onion, and parsley. Prepare the ladolemono (olive oil, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper) Pour into the salad and toss. Serve right away or refrigerate for up 1-2 hours before serving. (Refrigerating it lets the flavors marinate a little bit). :) There you have it. Serve with warm toasted bread.

Love it! Thanks for sharing. I suggest adding fresh parsley or cilantro to the dip, it will really add more flavour and give it more of that greek color

This is truly one of my favorite all-time dishes in Greek cuisine. I used to get it all the time while in Greece, and I can't find it much in the United States. The goal is for me to learn how to make it like they do in Greece!
 

There are more ways to make baklava than you think!

Many people think the traditional way to make baklava is with walnuts and syrup, although there are many different recipe variations from Greece and all over the world. One of my favourites is the Turkish version which is made with pistachios, and the syrup includes rosewater. There are also a few modern versions that include chocolate, like chocolate dipped baklava. Here is a recipe for covered baklava with pistachios!

These are the best loose leaf Greek herbal teas

Herbal teas can have many positive medicinal and health benefits, especially when dranken on a daily basis. Usually I like to buy loose tea, meaning the tea is not already in tea bags. This means that they are fresh and higher quality. Bagged teas tend to be more processed. Some of the best Greek herbal teas include...

1. Sage tea (this is the best for stomach problems)
2. Moutain tea (the most traditional Greek tea)
3. Fennel tea
4. Rosemary tea and oregano tea (I have never tried these personally but I have heard a lot about them and they have many health benefits)

Treat yourself or your loved ones to a Greek sweets basket!

Because of Covid, I haven't been seeing a lot of my friends and family and I haven't been able to celebrate with them for birthdays or the holidays. I thought that because so many of us are missing Greece and Greek food that it would be nice to get some of them a Greek sweets basket so they can remind themselves of the suites they ate growing up. Because this basket is bought online, you can deliver it to any address and really brighten someone's day. I hope you all enjoy it.

Check out this amazing Greek olive bread recipe!

Greek olive bread is one of my favorite breads!! It's so unique and adds a lot of flavor to your typical table bread. You can use your existing bread recipe and simply add your favourite type of olives to it or you can use this recipe that is specifically made to taste great with olives. I like to use kalamata, but that's just my preference. Kalamata olives are probably the most traditional and popular olives.
