I love serving Greek dip platters as appetizers for my party guests. The combinations are endless, and you can buy the dips from the store or make them at home. For me personally, I like to have tzatziki, olive dip and taramasalata. Some other great runner ups are eggplant dip, hummus (I know its not Greek), whipped feta dip, and tirokafteri. These dips taste best with some grilled pita bread or some grilled nugget slices. Enjoy!

Dips and pita is a firm favourite in my home, but I’m vegan so make dairy free tzatziki. I’ve not made eggplant dip but planning to have a go after eating a gorgeous one on a recent holiday on Rhodes.

Do you mind sharing your vegan tzatziki recipe? I would love to try making it.

Of course, my pleasure.
I don’t tend to bother with amounts, it’s whatever tastes right, add a bit more of this and that, but my ingredients are:
Oatly oatgurt Greek style
Cucumber, grated and wrung through a clean tea towel or muslin
Chopped fresh mint
Chopped dill if available
Minced garlic
 

Shrimp pasta is a Greek classic

This dish might technically not be Greek, but it is loved by Greeks around the country and served at almost every Greek restaurant. The pasta is cooked in a seafood broth and the sauce is a mixture of tomato sauce and cream. The dishes topped with lovely Parmesan cheese!! 😊 One of my favorites.

Xoriatiki or village salad is the best!

This salad is a classic! It’s customary to order this at every single meal in Greece. It perfectly balanced the heavier meat and potato dishes. It’s always so good and I highly recommend that you order it. I just had this one, it’s a little more modern style but the flavors are the same. 😊

Greek snacks to bring on your road trip

There are so many Greek snacks that you could bring on your trips and road trips this summer! The first one that I recommend is spanakopita of course. This is a classic and will never disappoint. Other types of pitas are great as well such as tiropita and kreatopita. For sweet snacks I recommend pasteli, papadopoulos cookies and rice pudding. You can buy all of these on the go in Greece if you're on a road trip in Crete or on the mainland and you can also make them at home to bring along.

Famous Konstantinople yogurt kebab

This kebab is famous in Greece for its flavor and its roots in Konstantinople. It’s marinated in spices and tomatoes and then topped with a dollop of yogurt. It’s also usually served with pita bread and grilled veggies. It’s the best!

Greek dessert recommendations

Greece has some of the best desserts! You can find anything from French, Italian and Greek pastries at most bakeries and pastry shops. If you’re traveling there, I suggest you try a selection of some of the most popular and loved sweets. In my personal opinion, the best desserts you can get are profiterol, mille-feuille, baklava, pagotinia (little ice creams), and ekmek kadaifi. I personally like desserts with cream that are a little less sweet. You can find many desserts that have syrup (siropiasta) but they all have the same feel to baklava, so I suggest trying that first.
