Having traveled to Greece and worked in a Mediterranean Restaurant, I have my favorite Greek Dishes. Tiropitas or Greek Cheese Triangles being on the top of the list. I could eat a dozen of these. They are so easy to make and look so impressive! Perfect for Easter or as an appetizer. Only 4 ingredients are needed for this delectable appetizer!
I have joined up with some fabulous bloggers to share their favorite Greek recipes in honor of the opening of the movie, ” My Big Fat Greek Wedding”. I hope this inspires you to indulge in some delicious Greek Fare!
