Saturday Night Cooking Fun

Coming from Europe my exposure to cuisine happened in multitude. One of my favorite things was and still is Tzatziki sauce for my gyros.

This past Saturday however this cucumber garlic dill dip was used for a rather different recipe!

We made Bifteki Burger Sandwiches!                                                  It was an interesting twist on hamburger meat! The combination of mint, onion and feta cheese mixed into the meat and then served with the tzatziki sauce... everyone should try this! 

We served Spinach Salad with Mandarin Oranges and Walnuts with a Honey Dijon Dressing - we didn't make this ourselves.. was a tadbit spicy but the oranges gave it a nice little balance!

We also made creamy mashed potatoes with greek yogurt and ranch dressing powder and garlic ( we LOVE garlic).
The assembly was fun and simple - use a baguette instead of hamburger buns, spread with the tzatziki sauce, add slices of tomatoes and dig on.

This is definitely a recipe I will cook again... and I am able to enjoy leftovers too :)
