If you’re cooking fish or any kind of meat and want to kick the dish up a notch, consider a sauce called Ladolemono, which hails from Chef Katerina’s kitchen and our top selling cooking vacation in Greece, Greek Cooking Odyssey.
Like most other Greek recipes you will experience on our Greece cooking vacations, the ingredients in this sauce include olive oil as well as lemons and oregano. In fact, in a way it’s the Greek version of lemon sauce, and it tastes much like a vinaigrette. Of this recipe Chef Katerina says, “This is a sauce that we use almost every day! I always have a small jar of it, with a tight-fitting lid, in the fridge.”

- Combine the olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, salt, and pepper in a bowl and mix well with a fork. Then put it in a small jar and in the fridge.
