Let the Games Begin – With Flavor!

Just in time for the 2014 Winter Olympics, cookbook author and Patch blogger Colleen Walsh Fong shows readers how to whip together a simple and delicious Greek Salad.

The 2014 Olympic Games may be in Sochi, Russia but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the international sporting event’s Greek roots.

Stay healthy and ring in the Games with Colleen’s Sassy Greek Salad, a crunchy delight that balances salt, acidity, and robust flavor.

“It makes a great stand-alone meal because it contains both protein and good carbs, but I tend to use it as a side,” she writes in her Patch recipe blog. “It goes especially well with the new Greek Duet from my A-La-Carte Recipe Ensembles.

Its Mediterranean Meat Sticks are inspired by the kebobs found in Greek restaurants, and the Gyros Sandwiches and Tzatziki Sauce taste like Ambrosia! When I eat them with my Middle Eastern Couscous I feel like I’ve made it to Elysian Fields. And, of course, this salad ties it all together.”
