Dale’s Garlicy Roast Potatoes with Oregano and Feta

Growing up as a child in Melbourne, Australia, Greek culture and influence is everywhere. Sitting around his friend Ann's family table eating a Greek feast is one of Dale K's fondest memories.  

Here's Mrs. Katsounsous' recipe as Dale K makes it:

  • 2.5 lbs. of potatoes unpeeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 4 TBSP regular olive oil
  • 4-6 fat cloves peeled and minced garlic
  • 2 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 4 oz Feta cheese crumbled about 1 cup loosely packed

Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Tumble potatoes into a shallow roasting pan large enough for just one layer. Toss in oil, garlic and oregano. Roast for 50-60 minutes until golden and crisp. Transfer to a serving bowl and toss with most of the feta. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and sprinkle on top remaining feta and some garden fresh oregano leaves. 

Serves 4-6.

Dale K's easy summer salad vinaigrette

Dale K devotes a lot of his garden to salads. Peas, sprouts, lettuce, spinach, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes and carrots are all Dale K salad staples.

Here is a quick salad dressing recipe that flavors warm or chilled salads:

  • 3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar.
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard 
  • ½ tsp. raw sugar
  • 1 tsp. finely diced shallot or 1 clove minced garlic.
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup good quality olive oil

Combine all ingredients in a bowl except olive oil. Mix till combined. Whisk in olive oil till combined and mustard has emulsified. Sprinkle fresh chopped garden dill after the salad is dressed.
