What are Traditional Greek Food Ingredients

Traditional Greek food ingredients include:

  • Olive oil
  • Herbs
  • Tomatoes
  • Beef
  • Cheese
  • Pork
  • Lamb
  • Fish
  • Shrimp
  • Yogurt
  • Honey
  • Olives

Although this Greek Bowl isn’t on the list of authentic Greek dishes, it includes all of the ingredients that a Greek dish would have.

Make the Tzatziki Sauce

First, you’ll want to make the tzatziki sauce.

How to make Tzatziki

Blend all the ingredients well and then cover it and put it in the refrigerator to chill while you’re preparing the rest of the recipe.

Mix Tzatziki Sauce well and chill in the refrigerator

Cut up Your Veggie Ingredients

Second, cut up the tomatoes, red onions, cucumbers, and parsley.

And by the way, be careful with the quantity of red onions.

I tend to throw in more than what the recipe calls for, but in this case, stick to the 1/2 cup.

Needless to say, while eating my Greek Bowl, I had to pick out a lot of the red onions because they were overpowering the other ingredients.

Clearly, I love a hint of red onion, but no more than that.

On the other hand, be generous with the parsley.

It really adds a nice flavor to the dish!

Cut up your veggie ingredients

Prepare the Meatballs

Third, prepare the meatballs.

Full disclosure: I just buy my favorite frozen meatballs and throw them in the oven.

Obviously, you can make homemade meatballs, as I’m sure that would be tastier.

However, when you’re short on time and just want something easy but still delicious, frozen meatballs are your friend!

Use frozen or homemade meatballs

Cook the Couscous

Fourth, while the meatballs are cooking in the oven, prepare the couscous.

I absolutely love me some couscous!

Assemble Your Greek Tzatziki Recipe in A Bowl

Finally, assemble your Greek Bowl!

This is where you throw on some crumbled feta cheese.

Mmmm! So good!
