Geek For Greek...

I absolutely adore Greek food! Next to Mexican and Japanese, I think it is my favorite these days! 
For supper tonight, we had Greek Chicken (see earlier post for recipe) complimented by Tzatiki Sauce and Pickled Red Onion and it was DE-LI-CIOUS! 

Amazing what a few condiments do to enhance a meal! Had to share...

Tzatziki Sauce
From Kristi's Kitchen


16 oz whole fat plain organic yogurt
1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and finely chopped
1 tsp. sea salt 
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. red wine vinegar
1 tbsp, chopped fresh mint


-Combine all ingredients
-Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving

Pickled Red Onion
From Kristi's Kitchen


1 large red onion, halved and julienned
3/4 c. red wine vinegar
7 tbsp. coconut palm crystals
3/4 tsp. sea salt


-Combine all ingredients in a clean mason
-Place in the refrigerator and refrigerate for at least 24 hours before serving

Serve with Greek Chicken, Simply Delicious Hummus & Quinoa Tabbouleh OR Gyro Meat

Be looking for my yummy Figgie Tart Recipe later in the week... it is my healthful twist on a "Baklava-esk" treat... OH SO GOOD!

Happy Eating!
