    Grilled Shrimp Salad with Fresh Dill Dressing

    Grilled Shrimp Salad with Fresh Dill Dressing

    Grilled Shrimp Salad with Fresh Dill Dressing is a big hit at picnics and barbecues.  It is super easy to make.  Shrimp takes less time to marinate and less time to cook then most any other meat, chicken or fish.  Many people don’t marinate shrimp at all, choosing to just brush on flavorings during the grilling process, but marinating does give the shrimp extra zestiness.

    Olive Oil French Fries

    Featured Video Play Icon

    Potatoes are a food staple in Crete. My uncle, who lives in a small Cretan village, has a large plot of land dedicated just to potatoes.

My aunt would roast them in the oven, put them in stews, boil them for Horta, and, of course, make olive oil french fries.
