At the New Year's Eve party, we all want to have all the best, to bring in the New Year with plenty and to be like this all year round in our home. Even the salads that accompany the meat are rich and special.

Today my girlfriend Vicki Liodakakis from Malevizi brought me these wild greens because she knows I love her. Vicki is a young girl who three years ago quit her job as an accountant in Heraklion and returned to her village to grow tasty herbs. The ground was laid by her parents who had entered production a few years earlier.
The 15th of August ended with the great feast of the Virgin Mary. Praise be to her as we ate and drank well at our festival. We always dance traditionally in the festivities they set up in our villages, but the summer visits to the beach continue.
And yes, why not? This is the most delicious boiled summer salad with the entire summer garden on your plate. You can combine this edible green everything with meat, fish, a quick omelet, with plain boiled eggs, with a little feta or Cretan rusk bread.
I never tire of talking about the Cretan diet, the eating habits our grandparents had, how they cultivated their fields and gardens to produce healthy food, how they took care of hens and rabbits in their coops, how they raised the pig to slaughter it at Christmas, how they milked their goats to have fresh milk in their house, how they came out with their basket to gather greens, snails and mushrooms, how they prepared the oven for baking sweets and foods, how they made myzithras and trachanas and a thousand other things. What can I do?
