This creamy appetizer, one of Pamela Saltzman’s go-tos, is ready to serve in about 20 minutes. (She calls it “one of the best things you’ll ever eat.”) Make sure you use sheep’s or goat’s milk feta, which are more digestible than the cow’s milk version.
This breakfast take on a Greek favorite skips the heavy pastry and gives you a good dose of greens, along with heaps of feta and creamy ricotta for a satisfying start to the day. Make it ahead of time and simply warm it through in the toaster oven in the morning.
By removing the backbone, you get a juicy, whole chicken cooked in less time. The process takes only minutes but can be intimidating for first-timers; however, you can always ask your butcher to do it for you. Serve with additional lime wedges around the platter.
This vibrant salad uses zucchini thinly shaved into ribbons using a vegetable peeler, but if you have a spiral slicer, you can use that instead. Chipotle chile peppers add a smoky heat to the yogurt-based dressing, and crunchy pumpkin seeds and creamy feta top it off for a medley of flavors and textures.
Chicken salad gets an upgrade in this recipe that combines slightly tart pomegranate seeds with creamy feta cheese and root vegetables.
