I'm really happy to be joining in with Sunday Supper as part of my effort to get back into blogging again. Such a fantastic group of bloggers coming together and sharing meals that they are serving their families. This week is all about recipes that came from our grandparents, and the recipe I'm sharing is from my grandma.
My grandma was an incredible cook and when she knew you liked something in particular, she made sure to make it during every holiday and family gathering. I am the proud owner of a notebook she gave me with some of her favorite recipes when I got married. It's something that means so much to me since I can't just call her up and ask her how to make something anymore.
My grandma was quite a prankster and I fell for her tricks every single time. I was annoyed at the time, but looking back I laugh about it and have some pretty funny stories to share with my boys now. I miss her terribly as she has been gone almost 14 years now, so she didn't get to meet either of my boys. So, I try to make recipes from her notebook and share a bit about her every once in awhile so that know her through my memories.
She was an amazing cook and even had one of her pie recipes published in the paper out in Kansas City, which was later compiled into a cookbook. She had quite a knack with pie dough and she tried to teach me how to do it, but I am still pie challenged. I try every once in awhile thinking that at some point, I'll finally understand how the dough is supposed to feel.
The recipe I'm sharing today is one she marked in the notebook as one of my favorites, and it truly is. I haven't made it in quite some time so this week's theme inspired me to get the recipe out and let my boys try it. I really have no idea why this was called Greek Salad because it doesn't have a distinctive Greek flavor to me... but, that's the name it has on the recipe, so I'm going with it.
It couldn't be easier to make... gather your ingredients and prep what needs to be chopped. Add it all to a bowl and stir to combine. Put in in the fridge and chill. Seriously, that's all there is to it. It's got a great crunch because of the cauliflower and the green bell peppers and pimientos add a nice amount of color.
