Recipes from Today’s Show: Greek Night

Published by

Today on MHTV: Whenever I have Greek food, I am instantly brought back to my childhood in Detroit when I would visit Greek Town to get authentic and delicious dishes. Today, I’m making a menu inspired by those childhood memories. Colorful Greek salad is topped with feta and dressed with a red wine vinaigrette. Essentially the “Greek egg drop soup,” avgolemono soup is rich with eggs, rice and a bit of lemon juice. And, don’t forget dessert!¬†We’ll put together a Greek yogurt cake that’s simple and delicious.

    Thanks for the show! We are in/near Detroit and love Greek food. There ARE so many variations and I’d like to try to make these at home. For Sunday supper I think I’ll make some lemony chicken (a variation of you’re son’s recipe), rice, greek salad and of course the yogurt cake. Simple and delish! Thanks again.
