This appetizer was inspired from the ladopsomo I remember having at Athens Pizzeria in Panama City, Panama. They add a generous portion of shredded chicken on top, which almost makes it a meal; but you have to try the pizza! Ladopsomo itself is a type of Greek fry-bread that’s puffy, light and crisp. I needed an appetizer to go along with my Greek Chicken Pasta, and this combination came together perfectly! The flavors combine wonderfully, this would be a great summer appetizer. Not to mention, it’s healthy!

I love all the Greek flavors in this delicious pico. The tomatoes, onions and cucumber provide fresh flavor, while the olives and feta add a bit of saltiness. The vinegar and tzatziki give it a punch of tanginess. The pita is the perfect vessel to eat this. Broiling it produces a pita that is crunchy on one side, yet pillowy soft on the other. Definitely not your average pico. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Greek Pico De Gallo

Step-by-Step

  • 1The cucumber, tomato and onion need to be finely diced.
  • 2In a medium size bowl, add the cucumber, tomato, onion, oil and vinegar as well as a dash of salt and pepper.
  • 3Allow the ingredients to marinate for 5 minutes or so and then add the feta and olives. Let the mixture marinate and come together prior to adding more salt, remember the feta and olives provide a good amount of saltiness.
  • 4When you’re ready to serve, spread a thin layer of tzatziki on the center section of a shallow dish and spoon the marinated veggies on top. (You may want to drain the veggie mixture prior to spooning over tzatziki otherwise your pitas will become soggy).
  • 5Drizzle olive oil over your pita bread and toast or grill; cut into triangle wedges. I use the broiler setting; if you do this be sure to keep an eye they can burn very fast.
  • 6Line the outer portion of the dish with the pita bread. Sit back and watch your guests devour this one!
