💙Taramosalata💚

This dip has a wonderful flavor that is reminiscent of lox on a bagel. It is rich and salty but like many Mediterranean dishes, the ingredients are good for you. Consuming fish roe is one of the many ways to get your Omega-3 fatty acids as well as protein.

Also, olive oil, as we’ve mentioned many times on our site, is an excellent source of healthy fat and contains antioxidants.

Serve as a meze (with Ouzo) and a side of cucumbers, bread or other vegetables. καλή όρεξη (kali orexi – enjoy your meal!)
