Popular Greek Cuisine Recipes

The food of Greece is as sun-drenched as the landscape, and it's perfect for entertaining as well as a weeknight family meal. Healthy and delicious, Greek cuisine makes wide use of olive oil, vegetables and herbs, grains and breads, wine, fish, lamb, pork, olives, and feta cheese.

Jamie Purviance's Asparagus and Tomato Salad with Feta

Bright cherry tomatoes and nutrient-rich asparagus are beautifully dressed in a tangy Dijon and champagne vinaigrette, then tossed with crumbled feta cheese in this brilliant fresh salad. When buying asparagus, look for firm, bright green stalks with tight tips. If stems are tough, simply remove the outer layer with a vegetable peeler.

Garlicky Eggplant Dip

Fragrant and rich, bright and slightly sweet, this enticing dip features an exciting blend of flavors that perfectly complement the roasted eggplant around which it is built. Choose eggplant that are firm, smooth-skinned and heavy for their size; avoid those with soft or brown spots. As eggplants are very perishable, store in a cool, dark place and use within 2 days of purchase.
