This is an old Greek recipe that has been passed down through my family for many generations and shared with many friends.(at least that is what my YiaYia says) This is a good dish for any time of year weather it be in the middle of winter or the sizzling center of summer, any time of year is good. It is especially a favorite of mine due to the amount of greens and lemony juice. A tip for cooking, it would be good to use a very large pot, like the ones used in canning, for the amount of food is quite large. I also do a lot of things by hand but if you are not rustic you will need a mixer. A hand mixer will do fine.
