Greek food is so good, I love it.
I mean really, the Greeks know how to eat.
Fresh tomatoes, salty olives, pita bread, artichokes, greek yogurt.
Yeah, I think feta is my very favorite.
The only food that is used in a lot of greek cooking that I do not like is red onions. Which is why you rarely see them in any of my recipes. I don’t hate them, I just prefer not to use them. Especially raw, but trust me I would not, not eat say… guacamole just because it had red onions in it.
They’re just not my favorite.
Well, my time here in Oregon is already coming to end.
I am finally headed home on Thursday and could not be more excited. I miss the Colorado mountains, my kitchen and the luxury of having a grocery store five minutes away.
Oh yeah, I think I am most excited about that last part. Having a grocery store forty-five plus minutes away is not fun. It’s even way worse when you just walk in the door from driving the forty-five minutes there and forty-five minutes back and then realize you forgot the artichokes, blue cheese and bacon.
All essentials, obviously.
This happened every single time. Seriously, every single trip. Ugh.
Really, wasn’t it just yesterday I was complaining to you guys about coming here. Time is flying.
How is it already August and how is it that school is starting in less than three weeks for my siblings?! Can we please just hit the slow mo button now – please!
Pretty please with a cherry on top?
Anyway, these gyros happened for one reason.
I was up to my ears in fresh, gorgeous salmon. Oregon is apparently booming with the prettiest wild caught pink salmon I have ever seen. It was too pretty not to buy.
So I made some greek salmon gyros.
Some really good, really easy gyros that are the perfect fresh summertime dinner. Tons of fresh herbs, lemon, tomatoes, olives, peppers and a rather heavy amount of feta cheese.
Oh and the pitas? You have to make them yourself. There is nothing better than this pita recipe. Nothing. It is SO good.
This whole meal is so good.
And the leftovers make a pretty darn good salad. Oh, and if you do the salad? Make sure you add some pita chips. Chips and salad work. Really well!
Is it dinner time yet?!?
