Macedonian Quesadillas

macedonian quesadillas

A Macedonian summer dish without a tomato and a pepper is not a Macedonian dish. Add a crumble, or few, of sheep cheese (similar to feta), and it’s complete.

Take away those three ingredients and it’s someone else’s dish, not ours. 

Like many of you out there, I modify most of our meals to suit my family’s taste. You will probably never ever see my husband eating a traditional Mexican quesadilla, but you serve him a Macedonianized (that’s not a word, is it?) quesadilla and he is game! Same goes for my father, my mother, even myself.

But that’s the beauty of food; you can change it up any way you wish and it will always be delicious, especially to those whom you serve it to.

Or not.

I’m sure someone will disapprove – we all have a black sheep in the family. 😉

    Thank you for sharing this at my link party. I just scrolled through the comments because I was sure I had commented on this before. I love one ethnicity varying another’s cuisine to make it it’s own. The great melting pot at it’s best

    Simple and delicious! We have quesadillas for lunch all the time thanks to our trusty panini press and this will be an absolute delight to add to the menu. Congrats on the Top 9, most well deserved!
