Traditional Greek Salad in Santorini.
Sunset view of our trip in Oia.
Looking back at our honeymoon pictures from last summer brings so many wonderful memories. I think Santorini is one of the most picturesque places in the world. Every picture we took looked like a postcard. I have never tasted a tomato or cucumber until I had them in Greece. The flavor is out of this world. I asked the locals why that is and they believe it’s from the breeze of the sea water which gives the tomatoes and cucumbers so much flavor.
Our friends recently took a big trip to Greece and did a cooking class in Athens which I would have LOVED to do. Lucky for me, they brought over their recipes and we recreated some of these classic Grecian dishes.
