“Posted for ZWT6 for Greece Region: These tasty fritters are very easy to prepare and can be served as a side dish or as a light snack on their own. Found on Authentic Greek Recipes website. Not sure of the amount of servings but I'm guessing for an appetizer or light snack about 4 servings. Prep time includes time needed for zucchini to drain properly.”
