Greek Goddess Salad dressing

Greek Goddess Salad dressing

This dressing is the healthy answer to green goddess salad dressing.  Avocado, Greek yogurt, EVOO and lemon juice are the foundation of this delicious dressing.  Be creative when making salads.  We found pea greens at the farmer's market.  Don't be turned away by their thick texture.  They are flavorful and hold up well when dressed. Strawberries are in season and are a wonderful compliment to salads. Final note, make this dressing when you have that last lone avocado that is just a tad too ripe and soft. Ingredients: 1 ripe avocado 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt, my favorite is Fage...

Lamb Sliders with Beets, Greens & Beans

Lamb Sliders with Beets, Greens & Beans

These sliders are filled with fresh herbs, spices and feta cheese.  We chose organic, grass fed lamb that we found at a local farmers market.  Although we don't eat a lot of meat, lamb is a rich source of high-quality protein, and an outstanding source of many vitamins and minerals, including iron, zinc, and vitamin B12. Beets compliment the lamb nicely and are also nutritional powerhouses, packed with essential nutrients like folate, manganese, potassium, iron and vitamin C. Don't discard the greens!  We sauteed ours with garlic, lemon and a splash of wine and added white kidney beans to round out the meal. ...

Garlic Rosemary Focaccia

Garlic Rosemary Focaccia

I really love this recipe found on the Gimme Some Oven website.  During the stay at home this spring, we have followed so many people making focaccia bread.  Yeast has been a scarce commodity.  We finally found some and were able to make this bread.  It is light, airy, and melts in your mouth.  Be generous with the EVOO both before and after it is baked.  When proofing the yeast, pay attention to the temperature of the water, 110' is hot to the touch.   Ingredients: 1 1/3 cup warm water (about 110°F) 2 teaspoons sugar or honey, we used honey 1 (0.25 ounce) package active-dry yeast...

Mediterranean Grilled Whole Sea Bass & Red Snapper with EVOO, lemon, oregano and fresh herbs

Mediterranean Grilled Whole Sea Bass & Red Snapper with EVOO, lemon, oregano and fresh herbs

This is a classic presentation and method of cooking fish in Greece.  Fish is an essential part of the Mediterranean Diet.  It is nutrient dense and naturally low in calories.  One of the best ways of telling if fish is fresh is to look at the eyes.  If the eyes are plump and clear, it is a good indication that the fish is fresh.  We like to cook fish on the grill, however this recipe can also be adapted to an oven (425'). Ingredients: 2 striped sea bass, cleaned and scaled 2 red snapper, cleaned and scaled 1/2 cup The...

Peruvian Cod with Shallots and Fresh Tomatos

Peruvian Cod with Shallots and Fresh Tomatos

The key to this delicious and simple fish dish is a McCormick Peruvian spice blend.  It is a mixture of paprika, cumin, garlic, lime and a pinch of sugar.  It you can't find the McCormick spice, just make your own!  I used cod for my dish, but any other mild, flaky fish will do!  I made this on the grill, but it can easily be baked. Ingredients: 5 cod fillets, dried with a paper towel 2 T The Furies EVOO 3t Peruvian spice blend 1 shallot, sliced 1 tomato, seeds removed and sliced salt and pepper to taste lime wedge Directions:...

Chopped Vegetable and Bean Salad with Lime Cumin Dressing

Chopped Vegetable and Bean Salad with Lime Cumin Dressing

Bean and legumes are an integral part of the Mediterranean Diet.  The recipe is easily adapted to whatever beans and vegetables you have on hand.  The dressing features cumin, lime and honey.  The Furies EVOO completes the dressing adding a velvety texture and fabulous fresh taste!  I like to make the salad early in the day so that the flavors have time to marinate into the beans and veggies.  It lasts well for 3-4 days in the refrigerator and makes a healthy lunch the next few days.   Salad: 1 can black beans, rinsed 1 can of pink, Great Northern beans,...

Honey Garlic Chicken Kebabs

Honey Garlic Chicken Kebabs

I love these kebabs! The flavors of the peppers and onions in this recipe are heightened by the sweet and savory marinade and the chicken is caramelized while grilling making it tender and juicy.  Ideally try to marinate the chicken for at least an hour, but when we made it last night we only had 20 minutes to spare and it was still fabulous!  Next time I make this, I may sneak in pineapple or peaches into the kebabs.  You can also trade fresh mint or basil for the parsley or cilantro. Ingredients: Marinade: 4T The Furies EVOO 1/3 c honey...
