GREEK GREEN BEANS and Chicken Kebab

|
Happy Monday!
My weekend was busy , we were working on some awesome projects that I can not wait to share here with you!
Let’s start this Monday with a great recipe again though.
I will dedicate Mondays for recipes from now on, although I stayed  pretty much  with this schedule I had some Mondays without recipes posted.
Today I am sharing this super delicious authentic GREEK GREEN BEANS recipe!
We love to go to a local Greek festival with the family every year, and  one of our favorite Greek dish is the Greek green beans, also called FASOLAKIA.
Fasolakia is a traditional Greek dish and it is absolutely fantastic. Fresh green beans slowly cooked to perfection in tomato sauce  and with onions. Very tasteful. You can serve it hot or cold.
I have been making this recipe for a long time and it’s absolutely family favorite.
 I served it with  grilled chicken kebab and some grilled tortillas and we sure licked our fingers after finishing this meal.
