Cookouts are almost a national pastime in Greece. Many major holidays are traditionally celebrated with picnics, and outdoor cooking and eating are the best ways to enjoy the beautiful weather.


  • Greek olives and crusty country bread accompany both the appetizers and main meal.
  • Appetizers are served while the meat is cooking and left on the table to accompany the meal.


Main Meal


Picnic Note: Pack dressing for the Romaine Lettuce Salad separately and add just before serving.
