Ingredients

Roasted Garlic French Bread:

  • 1 (4 ounce) package Idahoan® Roasted Garlic Flavored Mashed Potatoes

  • 1 pound butter, softened

  • 1 loaf French bread

Greek Salad:

  • ½ pint cherry tomatoes, cut in half

  • 1 cup cucumber, peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch thickness and cut into quarters

  • 1 medium red onion, chopped into thin slices and soaked 10 minutes in small bowl of ice water to reduce sharpness

  • 1 small green pepper, coarse chopped

  • ¾ cup kalamata olives, pitted and sliced

  • 6 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 ½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • ¾ cup crumbled feta cheese, for topping

Tzatziki Sauce:

  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt

  • 1 cup cucumber, small dice

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill

  • 1 pinch Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Mix the dry package of Idahoan Roasted Garlic Potatoes with the butter until blended. Slice the French bread length wise and generously spread with the roasted garlic mixture. Toast under the broiler until butter spread is melted and toasted on top. (You can also grill the Garlic Bread--see footnote.)

  2. Greek Salad: Drain onion from ice water and pat dry with paper towels. In a large bowl combine all salad ingredients, except cheese. Top the French bread with the Greek salad and sprinkle cheese over top. Serve with Tzatziki sauce.

  3. Tzatziki Sauce: In a medium bowl, combine Greek yogurt, cucumber, lemon juice, garlic, and dill. Stir until well combined. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Great on the Grill:

Spread a small amount of the butter mixture on each slice of the French bread. Place face down on the grill until grill marks appear. Turn over and move to the indirect heat side of the grill and spread generously with more of the butter mixture. Close the lid or cover with foil until butter mixture is melted.
