This sauce is our absolute favorite--it pairs with everything from roasted veggies to a dip for warm pita bread. It strikes the perfect balance of indulgent but simple--exactly what Mediterranean cuisine is to us. 

Ingredients:

  • 4 oz. Greek feta, crumbled 
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt, plain 
  • 1 TBSP. Kosterina extra virgin olive oil 
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest 
  • 1½ TBSP. fresh lemon juice 
  • 1 clove of garlic, grated through the microplane 
  • 1 TBSP. fresh dill, minced 
  • 2 TBSP. fresh parley, minced 
  • 1 tsp. tiny capers, rinsed well (optional) 
  • sea salt 
  • freshly ground pepper 
  • Kosterina extra virgin olive oil for topping 

Directions:

  1. To make the Feta and yogurt sauce, crumble the feta and mash it with a fork. Place in a medium bowl. 
  2. To the bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and mix well until blended. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Cover and set aside, at room temperature, for at least half and hour.  
  3. Drizzle with some extra Kosterina olive oil and serve. Use it as a spread on toasted pita bread, as a dip, or use it to dress warm, oven-roasted vegetables.

Grilled Shrimp Skewers require minimal effort--just a drizzle of Kosterina Greek Herb & Lemon Olive Oil and a few sprinkles of salt, pepper and dried oregano before they go on the grill.  We love to serve them with our Panzanella salad, chock full of garden vegetables and super crunchy Kosterina croutons.

Making pizza at home is easier than you think.  Our (basically) no knead dough comes together in minutes in a food processor and our secret ingredient to a super flavorful result is our Garlic Oil.  Make a double batch because this dough is perfectly freezable too.
