“This is a great side dish for any Greek dinner. Originally from an April 1980 issue of Bon Apetit. It was featured in an "Easter Feast from the Greek Islands" article featuring a menu and recipes from Theonie Diakidis Mark, who was born on the island of Rhodes. Rich, homemade chicken broth really makes this dish!”
