The Best 21 days of the Year

Are you as excited that the Olympics have started as we are?

We LOVE the Olympics!  Of course, we have our favourite events, like track and field, swimming, diving, gymnastics and volleyball, but we’ll basically watch any of it.

What’s really exciting about these Olympics is that we actually know some of the people competing! Pretty cool, eh?

Anyways, in honour of the Olympics, we decided that for lunch today we’d pay tribute to the country that started it all- Greece!

Ok, so nachos aren’t exactly Greek, but the Olympics are about bringing countries together, aren’t they?  So this is Mexico meets Greece, and you know what?  We think this is the start of a great friendship 😉

Last night’s leftover Greek salad, black olives, feta cheese, and just smothered in home-made tzatziki and hummus, these nachos are  loaded! If you wanted to, you could put grilled chicken or lamb on them, too, to keep with the theme. These ones, however, are completely vegetarian!

Quick, easy and healthy, perfect for the Olympics, because after all, we would want you to miss too much of the games in the kitchen!

We believe the time is right now. to stand tall and… go make these nachos! 🙂

Greek Nachos

Prep time: 5 min

Cook time: 3 min

Ingredients:

For the Nachos:

Nacho Chips

Greek Salad

Black Olives

Tomatoes

Feta Cheese

Tzatziki

Hummus

For the Tzatziki

2/3 c. greek yogurt

1/2 c. grated cucumber

1 clove garlic, minced

salt, to taste

For the Greek Salad:

5 tomatoes, diced

1 cucumber, diced

1/2 black olives, halved

1/2 c. feta

1/4 c. white vinegar

3 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp lemon juice

pepper

*we didn’t put onion or green peppers in because our dad doesn’t like them!

Directions:

For the Tzatziki: grate the cucumber and stir into the yogurt with the garlic and allow to sit to allow the flavours to develop.

For the Salad: combine tomatoes, cucumber, feta and olives in a bowl.  Stir in the vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, and pepper and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes.

For the Nachos: arrange the tortilla chips on a plate and top with olives, tomatoes, and feta cheese (add onion and green peppers if you like!).  Place under the broiler for 3-4 minutes.  Remove from the broiler and top with greek salad, tzatziki, and hummus.
