Today I’m serving up a Big Fat Greek Salad. You’re welcome… Shave everything.
If you haven’t seen the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, you may miss the joke here, but that’s ok.
The first My Big Fat Greek Wedding movie, that came out in 2002, opened the eyes to the rest of the non-greek nation to the joys (and sorrows) of having a large greek family.
The movie had most of us rolling in our theater seats the entire summer of 2002. Then later quoting things like, “You don’t eat no meat?! That’s ok… I make lamb.” Or, “There’s a hole in this cake!”
A greek friend we met when we first moved to Asheville informed us that the stereotypical jokes were somewhat true, right down to spraying Windex on rashes and pimples. I’m sure not every greek family would agree.
When I heard a My Big Fat Greek Wedding sequel was coming out this year, I was ecstatic! I hoped, the sequel wouldn’t be a flop, like so many sequels before it.
Yet to my extremely pleasure, I found My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 to have the same fun-loving attributes as the first movie. Belly laughs, heart-felt moments, lots of togetherness.
So when I decided to share my heavily-loaded, over-flowing, almost-too-many-good-things-in-one-bowl greek salad, there was only one name for it… My Big Fat Greek Salad.
My Big Fat Greek Salad is a little more boisterous than the typical greek salad.
It’s ostentatious… in a good way.
Yes, you’ll find crispy lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, and cool cucumbers.
However, we’re also adding chickpeas, pepperazzis, artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, sun dried tomatoes, and feta cheese, if you so desire.
My Big Fat Greek Salad is a smorgasbord of textures, colors, and intense flavors!
Toss it all together with a fresh-made greek vinaigrette and you have a salad worthy of the greek gods.
My Big Fat Greek Salad is a must-make this season.
I suggest pairing it with my Greek Lemon Chicken Soup and then head off to the movies!
