The Marietta Greek Festival

Need fun plans for this weekend? Check out the Marietta Greek Festival. It's held at Hold Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church off Trickum Road on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. They have a gift market, singing and dancing, an art area for the kids, but most important - they have Greek food!!! Spanakopia, souvlakia, tzatziki, gryos, stuffed grape leaves, greek salad, baklava, pastries, cookies and more. The food was definitely my favorite part. If you go to their website, you can get free admission after answering a couple of questions.
My favorite greek salad dressing recipe is below just to get you in the mood.  I love this dressing anytime of year, but when the tomatoes are ripe and fresh in the summer, it's over the top good.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing from

1/2 cup olive oil
1 1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 1/4 tsp dried oregano
1 1/4 tsp dried basil
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp Dijon-style mustard
2/3 cup red wine vinegar
Put all ingredients into closed container (glass or plastic) and shake REALLY well.  Store in fridge. These measurements will be enough for about 10 salads.
