Cookbook creator says: This is simply amazing. Watch the lemon - it's really strong! Serve with a full-bodied white, like an American Chardonnay.

Being that I'm half Greek, I grew up eating tomato, cucumber, and feta salads. This is my version from my childhood memories. I sometimes sprinkle toasted pine nuts on top with some extra basil. It's good with grilled chicken and orzo or rice.

Crab Cake Burgers
Very Good 4.9/5
(7 ratings)

These burgers have a true crab flavor that isn't masked by fillers or strong seasoning. Serve on a bun with tartar sauce or with a lemon-juice-dressed salad of greens, sprouts and sliced peaches. This recipe works best with convenient pasteurized crabmeat, usually found in the refrigerated case near the fish counter. If you prefer lump crabmeat, cut it into small, uniform pieces.

I love this recipe! It can be used as a sauce for grilled meats, a dressing for salads or steamed vegetables, or as a marinade for tofu or other lean proteins. You will always find it in my refrigerator.

Lean and versatile, this recipe is the little black dress of your healthy recipe arsenal. Cook this roast on a Sunday and enjoy it throughout the week. We used no salt, just pepper for a truly flavorful roast.

This dish just cries "Summer" and it's one of my favorite dishes to make in late July, early August when the Farmer's Market is flush with these favorite vegetables.

If you prefer, you can peel the eggplant, but we love the added texture and flavor. I often make ahead on Sunday for dinner later in the week as the flavors marry and deepen if allowed to sit a day or two. Serve over whole grain pasta for a healthy vegetarian dinner that your kids will love.

A little of this sauce goes a long way. It is a great way to kick up seasonings on bland meats, such as grilled steaks, baked chicken and fish.
