Greek Potatoes and Salad

Tonight’s dinner was lemony-garlic roasted potatoes accompanied by a Greek inspired salad. My recipe developed from several sources over time.
We have had these potatoes alone, with chicken, hummus and pita chips, baked feta cheese or eggs. They take just a few minutes to prep for the oven and are very filling.

Greek Potatoes
2-3 white potatoes- cubed or cut in wedges
1 onion- diced or sliced
1/4 c olive oil
2 cloves garlic- minced
1/3 c water
1 tsp dried oregano
1/3 c lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Put onion and potato in an 8″x8″ baking dish. Mix together the remaining ingredients, pour over potatoes and stir.
Put in 425°F oven. Bake 20 minutes, stir and return to oven for 20 more minutes or until potatoes are tender and most of the liquid is gone.

Our salad tonight was baby spinach with black olives, tomato, feta cheese, hard boiled egg, red pepper flakes and a balsamic vinaigrette.

Some time ago a read a tip on the internet that if you chew gum while chopping onions your eyes won’t water. I happened to be chewing mint gum tonight and my eyes did not tear up at all. So this tip is worth a try I guess.

Happy Friday!
