I heart Greek food. One of my happiest trips was to Greece, simply because I got to go to tavernas and order a table full of food! It certainly doesn't hurt that most of the food is naturally gluten free! So I thought I would have a series this week focusing on the things you can make (easily - I promise!) to have your own Greek feast at home!
The first thing I always make is Greek salad. I typically make it one day prior as it totally gets better on day two and day three. And it's really easy to make. You'll need:
- 2-3 cucumbers (I heart cucumbers, so I always use three)
- 1/2-1 onion of your preference
- 1 bell pepper
- 2 tomatos (I always omit)
- Olives (optional, again I omit)
- 2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- Oregano to taste
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Feta Cheese
Start by chopping up all the vegetables into bite size pieces. Modify the amounts based on your preference. Then pour in the olive oil and add spices and stir really well. If you aren't mixing it in the container you will be storing it in, transfer it now. Then top with feta and cover, leaving it at least 4 hours before eating.
It stays good for a few days in the fridge, and is a really nice side dish, or have a bigger portion for a healthy lunch!
