Recipe: Cold Lentil Salad with Cucumbers and Olives — Recipes from The Kitchn | The Kitchn

Lentils slip in and out of my consciousness throughout the year, filling out warming stews and serving as a bed for braised meats during the winter, then resurging as a base for cold yet hearty salads in the summer. Every year I revisit this particular salad of lentils, cucumbers, olives, and mint tossed with a sherry vinaigrette, whether to dole out for lunches throughout the week or as a healthy contribution to a summer cookout.

Recipe: Spinach and Lemon Soup with Orzo — Weeknight Recipes from The Kitchn | The Kitchn

This soup is a riff on the Greek avgolemono: a delicious concoction of beaten eggs and lemon juice, whisked into broth and cooked just enough to thicken. While I borrowed the egg and lemon motif, I also added spinach used orzo instead of the rice. This soup has one other curious feature. It really is a pasta and a soup in one — a two’fer.

Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki Sauce and Greek Salad | Serious Eats : Recipes

Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki Sauce and Greek Salad | Serious Eats : Recipes.

One of the few meat foods I crave.  This recipe includes how to make the salad and tzatziki also, if you want to skip the chicken.  I marinated mine overnight, and then grilled it on a grill pan on the stove because i was too lazy to clean and set up the grill outdoors.

Kalyn’s Kitchen®: World’s Best Tzatziki Sauce Recipe – Greek Yogurt and Cucumber Sauce

If you have never had Tzatziki, you should.  Its a healthy, cooling, lightly tangy condiment that goes fantastic with meats, veggies, and grains.  I like it especially with grilled souvlaki chicken, falafel, lemony quinoa and kale, pita bread, and as a dip for carrots and crackers.
