Each day our kitchen prepares the freshest foods continuing with our treasured traditional family recipes. We are pleased to share some of our favorite recipes with you.
As you may know, Tzatziki is a cucumber and yogurt dip, served today with Gyros and traditionally served as an accompaniment for a variety of meats. It’s also a great dip for your pita bread, fresh veggies, or whatever you’ve got a mind to pair it with! This is a healthy, tasty sauce that’s easy to prepare and easily added to any kitchen repertoire!
TIP: Leave the pita bread off, and it’s GLUTEN-FREE!
Make sure to chill this dish, as that’s how it’s best served. If you have any feedback or questions on this recipe or any other recipe, you can always contact us at the Olympia Grill in Galveston! And if you make it, let us know how you liked it!
When the weather begins to turn cold and chilly, we all set aside our frozen treats and look for something a little hotter to warm us up after dinner. We’ve been making this Bread Pudding in house for years now and it’s certainly a people pleaser! Rich and savory, it’s a great treat to make on a cool afternoon – and it’s just in time for Thanksgiving!
Yia Yia would be proud to see this on your dessert table for the holidays! As always, please let us know if you’ve made one our recipes – we’d love to hear your feedback! Enjoy your meals and have a great time!
If there’s one thing that says “fall” to us, it’s soup. What’s better than coming home to a nice, warm bowl of soup to warm you right up after being out in chilly weather? This recipe – given to us by our Yia YIa, or grandmother – is tasty and healthy.
Tip: Adding Skordayia (Greek Garlic Dip) is just what the doctor ordered for a cold! Just about an ounce would do!
This is comfort food, that brings on good memories! It’s a staple at both of our Olympia locations in Galveston. As always, if you try out the recipe, let us know how you liked it!
Kali Orexi! (Bon Appetit)!
Today we’re bringing you a quick recipe for a seasoning mix from spices you most likely have in your cabinet! This is a great one to store away for future use, because it pairs well with many dishes and yields 1/4 cup! If you choose to use fresh Oregano, or Thyme, make sure to double the amount in our recipe.
You can use this seasoning mix on red meat, pork, poultry, or fish because of its versatility.
You can use Ground Cinnamon and Nutmeg to spice up wild game or sauces to your taste, and Mint is especially good in a Meat Ball Mix or with Lamb.
As always, if you make this recipe, let us know what you thought! Or if you visit us at Olympia Grill in Galveston, we’d love to discuss it! Enjoy!
Not only is this salad a staple in our restaurants, it’s also a staple in our homes. A fresh, healthy option for dinner or lunch, it’s simple to make. The dressing is also simple to prepare, and lasts about a month in the fridge – just make sure to keep it out of direct sunlight!
Our dressing isn’t just for salads, either: it’s also great as a marinade or as a dipping sauce for breads. As always, if you make one of our recipes or have a request for a recipe, let us know!
