Bunko Dinner Party {Greek Theme}

May is my month to host Bunko! I wanted to do it once it was warm (hopefully not TOO warm!) so that we could sit out by the pool! I have been thinking about what I wanted to do. With my new healthier lifestyle I wanted to still make a YUMMY  dinner but have it be easy on the waistline! My plan started with

Al’s Famous Greek Dip  w/Pita Chips

Chicken Souvlaki

Chicken breasts, pounded thin and cut into 1 in strips
2 cloves fresh minced garlic 
1 t fresh oregano 
2 t fresh flat leaf parsley
juice from 1 lemon
1/4 c olive oil
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Marinate overnight. Place on skewers and grill.

Roasted Vegetables

I toss the veggies with the same marinade I use for the chicken.
Zucchini
Squash
Onions
Tomatoes
cut, marinate and wrap in foil with 2 ice cubes and toss on grill for apx 30 mins (crisp/tender)

Greek Salad

Dressing:
6 T olive oil 
6 T lemon juice 
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, crushed
fresh oregano
Salt & pepper

Salad:
 
2 heads Boston or mixed lettuce, torn into bite-sized pieces 
4 small cucumbers, sliced
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 pint cherry tomatoes, cut in 1/2
1 cup pitted ripe olives 
4 oz feta cheese, crumbled

Whisk together dressing ingredients & add salt & pepper to taste. Set dressing aside. Toss lettuce & remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Add dressing just before serving.

Tzatziki Sauce

cheated and bought it at Trader Joes!

    I certainly popped over on the right day. I LOVE Greek food and have ZERO good recipes. I just copied these to print out later…YUMMY! I miss bunco…I had to quit – no babysitters and hubby works too late…maybe again soon. Enjoy

    I am literally drooling over my keyboard reading these menus/recipes. Sadly, I went vegetarian a few weeks ago. I don’t know if it will last, but….I’m gonna have to stop reading posts about chicken/beef/etc. omg! Salivating!
