I'm shopping at Mitchell's more often and one of their best values is the souvlaki. It tastes great and is easy to BBQ. I made saffron rice with salt, lemon juice, olive oil and a pinch of saffron. To accompany the meal a Greek salad.
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
Dice some cucumber and tomatoes. I finely chopped a slice of onion and broke a piece of feta cheese into the bowl. A handful of black olives and toss.
The pork kebabs were BBQ'd over medium heat for 15 minutes. I couldn't find a decent green vegetable so I bought some crimini mushrooms. While I was making dinner I thought to put green peas in with the mushrooms. Normally Fern doesn't like frozen vegetables in summer. This time he commented on how good the mushrooms and peas were.
I used Western Family Black Pitted Olives and unfortunately they tasted cheap. They had crunch and looked good but when I bit into one I got a mouthful of ... nothing. They had no flavour. The meal would have been perfect if I had spent another dollar on the olives.
