Recipe by Leslie in Texas

This recipe was printed in a magazine many years ago in an article with a menu and recipes for a Greek Gourmet Dinner Party. I've made it numerous times, sometimes adding grilled chicken breast or cold boiled and peeled shrimp for a complete dinner. It's one of our favorites during the hot, humid summers here in Texas!
