Sunday dinner - My version of 'fusion'
OK so this isn't literally 'fusion' cuisine but it is 2 favorite dishes from 2 glorious food cultures, in 1 meal. By the time Sunday evening rolls around I am usually not into cooking at all...especially during the summer. No need however...start with some delicious pre-packaged sushi from your local market (we get a pack each of Wegmans asparagus and spicy salmon varieties) and pair it with a delicious Greek horiatiki salata and loaf of crusty bread (Wegmans Italian is my fave). Oh my gosh...so yummy! Such a light, healthy meal to bring a summery weekend to an end.
Here's my own recipe for the salad. They vary from person to person, town to town, region to region, in Greece. You can always add or subtract whatever you like and use as much of each ingredient as you desire :)
Horiatiki Salata (for 2 :)
1 cucumber (whatever variety you like)
1 red or green pepper
Olives (Kalamata preferred :)
Oregano, salt, pepper to taste
Extra-virgin olive oil (enough to coat and give a nice 'zoumi', or Greek sauce, for dipping your bread into - delicious)
Cut everything up. Add feta, oil and seasonings. Mix well.
(not sure how to say 'bon apetit' in Japanese:)
