From Modern Greek.
Faskomilo is sage which grows abundantly in Greece and is collected at the end of summer. This tea is widely drunk as a soothing medicinal tea to cure colds, sore throats, inflamed gums and upset stomachs.
Posting this for Greek region of ZWT 6. Found it online at FoodTV site from Giada De Laurentiis, while searching it for Greek recipes. Sounds delicious!! Time doesn't include time for sugar/water cooling.
From apartmenttherapy.com. Surprise...no mint this time around! Original recipe called for braising the green beans for a whopping forty five minutes. Use the best and freshest ingredients available. Several changes in this recipe were made.
The delicious yogurt dressing in this recipe is flavored with mint, and the salad goes very well served with a spicy meal. It was adapted from a recipe in a Fine Cooking publication.
Note: the dressing requires chill time. Be sure to make the salad ahead of time. The chill time is not included in the preparation or cooking time listed.
From "Pasta and Company by Request". My friend Sherrie made this for our DD's wedding and it got raves.Very elegant, it's great for large parties as it's best made several days ahead and served at room temperature. For the wedding there was enough for 125.
