Upon the arrival of my special guests this week, Melanie and her family, she brought me a gift from Santa Cruz. A friend owns a Greek Restaurant there called Vasili's. Stopping on their way from AZ, they ate there for dinner and brought me a yummy food care package!
It brings me to encourage you to visit a local Greek restaurant, if you can't make it Santa Cruz any time soon. Greek food in general is flavorful and you will find many gluten-free menu options. These are some samples:
Maroulosalata: lettuce, tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, red onions, feta cheese, pepperoncini & Greek olives
Chicken, Pork, or Lamb Kebabs
Tzatziki: cucumber, garlic, yogurt & cream cheese dip served with fresh tomatos and cucumbers (upon request to replace the traditional bread)
