Greek Night

20120612-230900.jpg

I have posted some of these recipes before…but this is a great weeknight dinner! Start with a Greek salad: lettuce, cucumber, beets, feta cheese, tomatoes, kalamata olives, red onion if you’d like, and Greek dressing (you can also use Italian in a pinch.)

Move on to hummus (store bought) with pita squares and carrots. I topped ours with beets because they are so good for you!

Gyros: this recipe is a “cheat” from my Cooking Light book and is simple and delicious, but not “real” gyro.

Falafel: I bought frozen falafel from Trader Joe’s. Did not love.

Tzatziki sauce: I usually make this yogurt-cucumber-dill sauce myself, but wanted to try TJ’s. It was good! You can’t go wrong with tzatziki of course. 😉

Rice: white rice with a bit of olive oil, dill, oregano, and lemon juice.

Try it!
