" Wonderful appetizer that will be enjoyed as a starter to a greek meal or any time. Serve lots of lemon wedges and pita bread. Use a good quality greek cheese. Here are three different ones - Krinos Kefalograviera, Kasseri and Graviera. There are others that may be easier to find. In a pinch use Italian Provolone but it is not the same."
