It's Greek To Me!

Once in awhile we love to do a Greek theme with our food. It is so tasty and healthy...kebobs with red peppers and onions, a big Greek salad, or maybe some (not so healthy!) spanikopita. I LOVE that but it can be pretty rich. Anyway, here is a nice starter for a Greek dinner. Definitely consider this recipe as more of a guideline. It works as is but is infinitely flexible should you want to use different herbs or skip something or other. Also, if your store has more than one type of feta, try it out in this. Frankly, I could stuff a pita with this stuff and be happy with it as a sandwich!!

Feta Salsa
1/2 lb. feta (cow’s milk)
2/3 cup sundried tomatoes in oil
1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives
2 tablespoons fresh dill
3 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup olive oil
Crumble the feta into a bowl. Chop the tomatoes and olives, dill and parsley and thinly slice the scallions. Gently mix the ingredients together and drizzle with a few tablespoons of olive oil, or to taste. Delicious served with triangles of fresh pita bread.
