Greek-Style Summer Salad with Feta
This is a Greek salad modified a bit to make it super simple with ingredients that are usually on hand. We make this version almost every night during the summer which makes it a staple in our household.

Greek Yogurt Pancakes
Using Greek yogurt anywhere and everywhere isn’t really a new concept for us, we’ve been doing it for as long as we can remember. But in a casual conversation the other day, we mentioned our super easy pancake recipe using Greek yogurt and the response was so enthusiastic that we figured maybe we should just post it for all. We love these pancakes and make them all the time. We can put our guarantee that you will love them too!

Peppers Stuffed with Eggplant, Onions, Capers & Feta
Stuffed peppers, called yemista in Greek, are traditionally made with rice and/or ground beef. Here we improvised to make them vegetarian (vegan if you don’t use the feta) and gluten free, using in season eggplant from the neighbor’s garden! They are also traditionally baked in the oven, but we couldn’t bear the thought of turning the oven on in this heat and humidity, so we tried them on the stove top and we loved the results. You can use this filling to stuff anything from eggplant to zucchini or serve it on its own as a delicious appetizer.

Traditional Koulourakia
We grew up in a Greek neighborhood outside of Boston, and our neighbors were more like family, not just people living nearby. It’s amazing to think back now and remember what it was like having this network of close friends all around us and always together. One of our neighbors, Theia Tasia and her daughter Ethel, have lived across the street from our family for over 40 years! They always made amazing Greek dishes and their Koulourakia were always our favorite. They were kind enough to give us their recipe and we’re posting it here for all of you!

Eggs Benedictopoulos
Eggs Benedict is an American breakfast dish that generally consists of an English muffin, topped with ham or bacon, poached eggs, and Hollandaise sauce. But we decided to “Greekify” it, bringing the best of both food worlds together! Instead of an English muffin, we used potato cooked in some Greek olive oil with salt, pepper and oregano. We added some sautéed spinach, Hollaindaise sauce made with Greek yogurt and our favorite cheese, feta! We didn’t use meat in our recipe but feel free to add some if you like. Traditionally, Canadian bacon is used for Eggs Benedict but if you can’t find Canadian bacon, you can use ham.
