I really want to get into cooking some hearty soups for the fall! Any recommendations for traditional Greek soups?
 
Here are some of the best Greek soups:

- Avgolemono
- Youvarlakia
- Fasolada
- Fakes (lentils)

Here are some good Greek soup recipes to check out:

All of those above are great soups.

Avgolemono is a sauce that goes on your dolmades in Greece, but searching it in English should return results for the soup; however, if you don't find the soup then try kotosoupa avgolemono/kotosoupa which is how it's called in Greek.

Sounds really tasty! Thanks for posting!
 
Lentil is one of my favorites, I just made a nice big batch of it. I always use carrot, celery, onion, tomato sauce or paste, and greens. Yum! I always love Avgolemono, too... I am about to make a big pot of that now!

Menu - Advice on What to Serve at a Greek Dinner Party

I'm planning to host a Greek-themed dinner party and could use some advice on what dishes to serve. I want to create an authentic experience for my guests and ensure they get a true taste of Greek cuisine.

Here are a few ideas I have in mind:
  • Tzatziki
  • Dolmades
  • Spanakopita
  • Souvlaki
  • Greek Salad
  • Lemon Potatoes
Should I add or subtract anything?

Different kinds of Greek salads?

I love horiatiki when I go to Greece - but I also noticed other types of salads being served.

Do they have names?

I tried one or two of them and most of them involved greens - like lettuce, etc.

Are they just the invention of the restaurant or are they common dishes? I guess it's hard to truly know unless I can share examples from restaurants, but Id didn't think to take pics last time I was in Greece.
