Tzatziki Sauce

Boy do I love Tzatziki, that creamy cucumber yogurt dip is so delicious. I’ll admit that I LOVE all Greek “treats”, e.g. Greek Gyro, Souvlaki, Spanakopita, Saganaki Cheese, Greek Salad. I love the clean & simple flavors of Mediterranean food; EVOO, mint, garlic, dill, oregano and parsley; so yummy and fresh 😋 Tzatziki is one…

Olive Salad

I love Olive Salad ❤, the reason being, it’s smeared on a Muffuletta Sandwich, which I adore. I posted this recipe previously when I published my Muffuletta Pinwheels and since I was craving a Muffuletta Sandwich and made a fresh batch, I decided I would bring you this recipe on it’s own. Two, football season…

Salsa Verde

Salsa verde is one of my favorite condiments because it is so bright and fresh! I’m channeling spring with this recipe because each spring, I plant salsa verde hybrid tomatoes because there’s nothing like your own fresh tomatoes in salsa. This salsa verde will pair wonderfully with my Tacos Al Pastor that I’m preparing this…
