So what are essential Greek Foods that common Greeks would Eat? One popular Greek dish is kotopoulou lemonato or Lemon Chicken this is just basically a fresh chicken with sliced roast potatoes seasoned with salt pepper Freshly squeezed lemons,oregano drenched with extra virgin olive oil roasted to perfection.
Another tasty Greek Dish is Yemista. (Peppers and Tomatoes stuffed with rice a little onion tomato sugar),roasted in the oven in olive oil with potatoes served with fresh bread from the bakery to dip in the olive oil.
Horiatiki is a Greek tomato salad served with feta cheese and Greek Olives sprinkled with oregano a touch of vinegar and olive oil. One in all my personal favorites Souvlaki is another popular Greek Dish it is Pork marinated in a special marinate served in pitta bread. Served with some Greek salad and topped with tzatziki my favorite yogurt and garlic dip it is delicious.
Taramasalata is a dip made from cods roe breadcrumbs, lemon, olive oil which is very tasty eaten with pitta bread as a starter or with fresh bread from a baker.
Moussaka is very popular though I would personally say it a single of the of the few less healthy Greek dishes it covers a layer of fried potatoes layer of minced lamb in a tomato sauce layer of fried aubergine or eggplant.Then another layer of minced lamb topped off along with a bechamel sauce with cheese before being roasted in the oven for an hour.
A tip for making your moussaka healthier is always to fry the potatoes and aubergines in olive oil instead of vegetable vegetable oil.
