When Princess V was just a little toddler, she loved Banana’s. I was at the bookstore, when I came across this book – Daddy’s Girl by Garrison Keillor
It’s all about this Dad and his little girl and the adventures they have throughout life. One section is called B-a-n-a-n-a-s. It lists a bunch of foods she’ll eat, but at the end she’s still asking for bananas. Well one of the foods listed is Souvlaki. I’ve always wondered what it was, and had this goal – yes from reading a board book – to try out Souvlaki.
As I was researching Greek food, there is was again – Souvlaki. I knew it was time to give it a try. Guys, I can’t believe I didn’t do this sooner!! It’s full of flavor, and OH SO EASY! Normally it is served with Tzatziki which is a cucmber yogurt. I didn’t have all the ingredients for it when I started, so you’ll notice I just used yogurt and cucumbers on mine. I have big plans this month though revolving around Greek food – tzatziki, hummus, and homemade pita to give you an idea.
- Pita Bread
- Plain Yogurt
- Cucumber, chopped
- Red Pepper, sliced
- Boneless Pork Ribs
- Red Onion, sliced
- salt and pepper
- Skewer the meat and peppers.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Grill until done.
- Spread some yogurt onto the Pita Bread.
- Top with cucumbers, pork, onion, and feta.
- There are no amounts, because it's based on you! This is easily adaptable for 1 to 10+.
