4. Greek-Style Chicken with Pickled Onions, Tomatoes, and Tzatziki
Even though it's fall, I still enjoy eating bright, fresh (and dead simple) meals. Today's recipe for Greek chicken with quick pickles, tomatoes, and tzatziki takes just 35 minutes from start to finish and is filled with flavors that seem like they took hours to create -- what's better than that? While this dinner is delicious with rice, I also love serving it over a warm pita or flatbread. And remember to hold on to your leftovers for a tasty room-temperature lunch!Sarah's Tip of the Day: Soaking red onions in vinegar mellows their sharpness, leaving them spicy and slightly sweet.
About Tzatziki Sauce with Mint and Dill: Use Greek, or strained, yogurt to make sure the tzatziki sauce isn't too watery.

This eggplant caviar is extremely simple to make, healthy and really delicious! I couldn’t find Crème fraîche (don’t know why I can’t find that product in Italy, will need to chase it down at some point or drive to France to get it) so I used Greek yoghurt instead and that worked too.
