Greek Style Potatoes
Greek Style Potatoes is a simple recipe, and the closest I can get to the real thing. The best is that it can be adjusted to your taste as you bake it. I sometimes add a little more lemon. The potatoes are moist, and great with green beans and baked chicken with a little salsa and feta on top.
Spinach and Rice (Spanakorizo)
This is a Greek side dish that our family loves. Add a little Feta cheese and fresh lemon after it's cooked and you have heaven.
Gigantes (Greek Lima Beans)
This is a family recipe. In Greek, it's called 'Gigantes' which translates as 'Giants.' Try to find the largest dried lima beans possible. My aunt adds small canned sausages, but I prefer this meatless. Serve with feta cheese and a crusty bread. You can also substitute 2 teaspoons parsley for the dill if you prefer.
Burnt Butter Rice
Awesome rice cooked in chicken broth, then topped with burnt butter! A family favorite that my Greek grandpa used to make! My dad loves it with plain yogurt on top, and my mother, with buttery tomato sauce. Great with everything!
Greek-Style Lemon Roasted Potatoes
Lemony, tender, golden-brown potatoes are a winning side dish for any meal.
Yia Yia's Tzatziki Sauce
Straight from Greece! This recipe has been in my family for years – my Auntie showed me how to make it this Greek Easter. Great with raw red peppers and pita chips.
Oven-Roasted Greek Potatoes
A delicious blend of potatoes, garlic, lemon, and herbs marinated overnight in olive oil and white wine. This is a nice way to dress up the potatoes and is always a hit at my dinner parties.

Dolmas (Stuffed Grape Leaves)
The spices may seem like a strange combination, but this is a wonderful, delicate traditional Turkish dish with a twist. Serve chilled, as is traditional, or warm, as desired. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over dolmas before serving.
Greek Spinach Rice (Spanakorizo)
Chef John's spinach rice is flavored with tons of fresh herbs and feta cheese.
Greek Green Beans
A nice mix of green beans, onion, and tomatoes simmered until soft and delicious! Just like Yia Yia used to make!
Herbed Greek Roasted Potatoes with Feta Cheese
These potatoes have a nice Mediterranean flair to them, with the lemon, garlic, and herbs. These are so delicious out of the oven topped with plenty of feta cheese.
Greek Lemon Potatoes
Greek lemon potatoes are the ultimate side dish. Potatoes are slow-roasted with lemon, oregano, and olive oil until they melt in your mouth. Authentic Greek lemon potatoes like these don't use any chicken broth or similar. They're as simple as they are delicious!
