Greek Tortellini Salad

Greek salad is made with tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, onion, feta cheese, and olives, typically seasoned with oregano and dressed with olive oil.

These ingredients are my favorite in a salad, especially the feta cheese – very delicious! It’s so easy to make up different styles of salads with these basic ingredients and cheese tortellini is the perfect combination in my opinion. I LOVE pasta, so I knew I couldn’t go wrong with adding it to the common Greek salad.  Enjoy!

Greek Potatoes

Potatoes were not introduced to Greece until the 18th century, but ever since then the potato is a big part of many Greek meals. Seasoned potato wedges that are fried or baked in the oven with a touch of lemon juice is a common dish known as “patates lemonates” or lemon potatoes.

Greek Souvlaki

A while back my son and his wife told us they had the most delicious Souvlaki they had ever tasted at a restaurant. So that put me to the challenge and I researched for my own great recipe. I combined different ingredients from different recipes I found on the internet and this is what I came up with....including the delicious Tzatziki dressing.

I love salads and this is a delicious Greek salad that I put together in next to no time. The dressing is definitely worth making and adds a great texture to the salad.
