|Happy Birthday to my sister Ro - She requested this Greek Feast so here goes!|
|By the way this cake was not made or decorated by me it was done by the Mrs. so I thought it only fair to show it off on this blog.|
Roll the pita up as best as you can and then chomp into it – there is no other way. Keep napkins at arm’s reach because it is sure to get messy – but oh so good!
Grill the chicken pieces on high heat for about a minute on each side
Remove from the grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes uncovered
Carve the chicken pieces into chunky slices
And as with the Lamb Souvlaki, build it up by taking a store bought pita bread loaf and filling with a generous serve of lettuce, tomato, onion and then topping with chunks of grilled chicken. Squeeze on some fresh lemon juice and garlic sauce (Yoghurt infused with garlic). Roll the pita up as best as you can and then chomp into it – there is no other way. Keep napkins at arm’s reach because it is sure to get messy – but oh so good - guaranteed or your money back (just kidding I don't offer warranties!)
It seems a little pointless to do a blog piece about a salad, but I must indulge in this one as it really hit a high note in the flavour stakes. Along with the cuboids of the usual suspects that appear in a Greek salad line up is the dressing that just brings the whole thing together. Many a time have I been quite unimpressed by the offerings at restaurants that are played up as Greek Salads. While the vegetables and the feta are perfectly good, what is most lacking is the punchline delivered by the dressing.
