A few years ago, I was approached by an American cooking website to be a food-recipe analyst. I accepted the position with enthusiasm and while I no longer work with them, it was a great experience. It was an opportunity for me to try something different. Once, I received a box filled with jarred sauce, seasonings and other food items along with recipes to try. One recipe in particular intrigued me and sure enough, it was delicious!
 
After, I made it several times it became a regular item on our menu. Although there were no preservatives in the jarred sauce, I had a problem with it… I had to buy the jar each time I wanted to make it. The solution was to make my own sauce recipe!
 
I found out that this recipe is a staple in Greece and it is a popular appetizer they like to serve. I prefer to enjoy it as a main course. It is light, amazingly flavorful, easy to make and served with crusty bread, this meal is very satisfying! You won’t feel “stuffed” after eating it – you’ll feel just right!
 
This dish is one of my favorite summer recipes although I make it all year round. I like to sip a nice crisp Sauvignon Blanc with it and truly savor every bite…!
Bon Appétit!
