There's something undeniably fun about food you can eat with your hands. That's certainly true when it comes to this Greek Nachos recipe. Featuring crunchy baked pita chips topped with loads of veggies like cucumbers, sweet bell peppers and cherry tomatoes, as well as salty, briny Kalamata olives and a creamy citrus-spiked Greek yogurt dip, this dish is a delicious combination of different textures and flavors which is reminiscent of traditional nachos yet totally unique.

My kids love nachos and could eat them for days, thus my desire to serve them a version with a healthier twist. That eventually led me to Mediterranean ingredients which are lighter and more nutritious than traditional nachos. If you've never thought about serving nachos as an entree, you may reconsider after trying this Greek Nachos recipe. They are so simple to put together, it's the perfect cooking opportunity for getting your kids involved, but they're also a real show stopper for an adult party.

    Wow, amazing recipe. I am going to use gluten-free pita chips, omit the feta, and also use homemade coconut yogurt as my son is gluten and dairy sensitive. And this is going to be a delicious meal. Yes, as you said, we are going to have it for supper accompanied by a fruit salad topped with coconut cream and grated dark chocolate. Mmm, heaven!
    Thank you, Catherine for this great idea!
