Greek-Style Quesadillas

Bringing us back to Greece!

Greek-Style Quesadillas
serves 4
(recipe found in Better Homes and Garden online)

4 - 7 to 8 inch whole wheat flour tortillas
1 cup coarsely shredded purchased roasted chicken
1/2 feta cheese
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/4 cup chopped cucumber
1/4 cup grape tomatoes, halved lengthwise
1/4 cup kalamata olives, halved
2 tablespoons whole flat leaf (Italian) parsley leaves
1 tablespoon whole fresh oregano leaves
1/4 bottled Greek vinaigrette salad dressing

1. Coat one side of each tortilla with cooking spray. Place tortillas, sprayed sides down, on a cutting board or waxed paper. Sprinkle with chicken, feta cheese, red onion, cucumber, grape tomatoes, olives, parsely, and oregano. Drizzle with dressing. Fold tortillas in half, pressing gently.

2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat for 1 minute. Cook quesadillas, two at a time, over medium heat for 4 to 6 minutes or until light brown, turning once. Remove quesadillas from skillet; place on baking sheets. Keep warm in a 300 degree F oven. Repeat.

Karl's reaction: "Not bad! These are good!"

My take: I was overly tired this day (thanks to pregnancy) so I didn't eat much, but it was very flavorful!

This is a real Greek meal in Santorini, Greece! SO GOOD!
And another...this is octopus! I promise it was good!
And our beloved gyros. Nothing compares to these....ever!
