While on holiday in Florida we visited the Greek shops on the sponge docks of Tarpon Springs. We stuffed ourselves with Gyros and salad at Yianni’s and then walked off enough room for a tasty treat down the street at Hellas. If you are in the area looking for authentic Greek food then Hellas restaurant and bakery is the place to go. The chocolate baklava cheesecake was sensational. It was so rich it took three of us to finish it off.
This week when I was trying to come up with a salad to serve at my son’s Blue and Gold Banquet for Cub Scouts I decided on my Americanized version of a Greek salad with lettuce. Here is the dressing I use.
