Greek food?

Does anyone have any recipes, hopefully fairly easy, for anything other than gyros or greek salad?

  • Spanokopita
    10 oz. Frozen spinach, thawed, squeezed dry of all liquid
    2 T Olive Oil or butter (for saute)
    1 Large yellow onion, finely chopped
    1/3 lb. Feta cheese
    2 T Fresh parsley, finely chopped
    6 T Flour
    18-20 Phyllo sheets (refer to package on working with Phyllo)
    3 Cubes Butter, salt-free (for brushing phyllo)
    4 Eggs
    Melt the 3 cubes of butter (low heat; don't let it bubble). Brush the 9" x 13" baking pan with olive oil or melted butter.
    Lay 6 phyllo sheets in the pan, lightly brushing each with oil or melted butter before adding the next layer. Brush all the edges first since that is where drying will begin. Spoon half of the spinach mixture over the top of the phyllo and carefully spread evenly to within about 1/2 inch of the edges. Lay 6 more phyllo sheets on top, brushing each one with oil or melted butter before adding the next layer. Spread the remaining spinach mixture over the top. cont.

  • Finish off with the remaining sheets of phyllo, brushing each as previously done. Cover and chill for about 30 minutes to set.
    Bake until golden, about 30-minutes. Test by inserting a table knife to the center. If it comes out relatively clean, your spanakopita is done. Don't let this go beyond golden brown. Let cool for 5 to10-minutes to set, then cut into squares.

  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
    1 tbsp. vinegar
    2 cloves garlic, minced finely
    1/2 tsp. sea salt
    1/4 tsp. white pepper
    1 cup greek yogurt, strained
    1 cup sour cream
    2 cucumbers, peeled, seeded and diced
    1 tsp. chopped fresh dill
    Combine olive oil, vinegar, garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mix until well combined. Using a whisk, blend the yogurt with the sour cream. Add the olive oil mixture to the yogurt mixture and mix well. Finally, add the cucumber and chopped fresh dill. Chill for at least two hours before serving. Serve on pita sandwiches or as a dip for toasted pita wedges.
