15th Dinner Club Meeting – Greece Menu & Recipes

14-Jun-2005

Culinaria Greece

 

Finally!  It seems like it’s been ages since our last Dinner Club Meeting!  This month R was the host and she chose "Greece" as the theme.  I think she had a hankering to cook lamb and so Greece was the obvious answer. 

Here was our menu for the night: 

 

Khoriátiki Saláta
(Country-style salad)  

2 – 3 tomatoes, diced
1 cucumber, sliced
1 onion, cut in rings
2 pale green peppers, cut in rings
Black olives
8 oz sheep’s cheese
Capers and eggs, as desired (in the photo the eggs are hard-boiled…)
Greek extra virgin olive oil
Vinegar
Oregano
Salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Put the prepared vegetables in a bowl, pour over the vinegar, season with the salt and pepper, and mix well. Garnish the salad with the olives, sheep’s cheese, and, possibly, capers and eggs. Be sure to pour over plenty of olive oil. Finally sprinkle with the oregano. Serve with white bread that has been freshly baked.

 

Tzatiki

8 oz Plain yogurt
2 Cucumbers
3 – 4 Cloves garlic
2 Tbsp. Olive oil 

Peel and grate cucumbers, place on paper towels and squeeze excess water from flesh. Mix into yogurt and add pressed garlic and olive oil.

Serve with warmed Greek pita.
