In 1982 I traveled to Greece with my youngest son who was 15 at the time. We only stayed in Athens for a bit before either taking a bus or a train to different towns. It was quite the experience and we immediately discovered the delicious local cuisine! Our favorite lunch was a baguette with sliced tomatoes and tzatziki and our favorite place was the island of Hydra !
It was quite the adventure! After exploring Greece for 2 weeks we then went on to Egypt....but that is another story!
Greek Tzatziki recipe
2 cloves garlic, 1 medium cucumber, 1 cup plain Greek yogurt,1Tbl lemon juice,1Tbl olive oil, 1 Tbl dill seed and pepper. Mash garlic, peel cucumber and scrape out seeds by cutting in half length wise, scooping out with a spoon and then mince finely or use a cheese grater. Mix with garlic and then add the remaining ingredients. Stir well and then chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. This will keep well for quite a few days. Enjoy!
Greece is beautiful. Thanks for sharing your recipes!ReplyDelete
I love the Greek kitchen too ! Very good, except in Athene, where I got in a "Greek" salad, Mozarella. Didn't like the town at all.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a nice trip. Mom has traveled around a lot of the world, but not to those places.ReplyDelete

My brother in law went to Egypt about the same time.
He was chaperoning a group of college students.
He had interesting stories about seeing armed soldiers on most of the corners...recipe sounds delicious
I'd love to see Greece but that will never happen since I refuse to fly these days. The Tzatziki sure sounds great.ReplyDelete
