Lunch is the main meal of the day in Greece and is typically eaten between 1 pm and 3 pm. It usually consists of several courses, starting with a salad* or meze (small dishes) like olives, tzatziki, or fava. The main course might include fish, vegetables, traditional pasta or potatoes, or rice.
A big love of Greeks is also legumes, lentils in soups or salads, giant beans in the oven, and chickpeas as spreads, are the main dishes that we eat at least two times per week.
Dessert might be a piece of fruit (apples, pears with cinnamon and honey) or a sweet like baklava, or orange pie.
