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. 😉
