I can’t believe it’s autumn again! It seems like only yesterday we got our BBQ out to open a summer season and now the weather is getting cold again and there’s not a sign of the sun in the sky! These last couple of years have gone so quickly. Surprising really, as we’ve been mostly locked up in our house and seemed to have quite a lot more free time with the pandemic swooping across the world. I thought times like this would feel like forever, but to be honest, it’s been the quickest couple of years of my life.

We have not gone on holiday for two years now, but we’ve been doing our best to take our tastebuds around the world by cooking up a storm in the kitchen. These last couple of weeks I have been dreaming about holidays in the Mediterranean, reminiscing about a week with my friend on the Greek Island of Zante. I needed a Greek food fix desperately! And that’s how the Greek Quesadilla recipe was born!

How to Make Greek Quasadilla?

First, make the tzatziki sauce. In a bowl, combine Greek yoghurt, finely diced cucumber, minced garlic, dill, lemon juice, lemon zest and mint. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Place the dip in the fridge for the flavours to infuse.

Greek Quesadilla

Place the spinach in a large colander. Pour a kettle of boiling over the spinach slowly, so that the spinach wilts. Leave the spinach to cool down slightly. Using your hands, squeeze as much moisture out as you can.

Place two tortillas on a work surface. Top them with blanched spinach, sundried tomatoes, olives, mozzarella and feta, avoiding about 1 cm around the edge. Using a pastry brush or your fingers, spread some water over the edge. Then place another tortilla on top and press down to seal the edges.

Brush two frying pans with a thin layer of olive oil and place on medium heat. Once hot, add one quesadilla per pan and fry for about 4 minutes until the bottom is browned. Carefully flip the quesadillas over and carry on cooking for another 4 minutes.

Cut the quesadillas into four wedges. Serve immediately with tzatziki sauce and green salad on the side.
