5 Star Makeover July 2012: Greek Meze Round-up
This month our challenge was...
Light Mediterranean dishes are wonderful in the summertime, Greek cuisine being one example. Pick a classic Greek Meze, such as hummus, or spanakopita, or dolmades, and make your own version of it. Or create your own unique meze infusing your culinary style with the classic Greek ingredients or flavors.
Pull up a chair and savor the creative spins our team put on these classic Greek Dishes.
