Greek Green Beans
Follow the advice of Pureshores and add a lot of fresh parsley about 1/2 cup or a smaller amount of dried parsley when adding the tomatoes. Cut the the sugar to 1/2 tsp or possibly 3/4tsp. You can use a small can of diced tomatoes if you do not have any fresh tomatoes. You may need to add a little water because typically the beans will not be soft in 45 mins. It depends on the beans but a few times I had to cook them for 1 1/2 hrs to get them as soft as they are typically served in Greece. You can use frozen beans too. You will need about 1/2 -1 can of water to cook until soft. Serve with a slab of feta and some crusty artesan bread and you have a typical Greek peasant meal.

Oia Greek Salad
This makes a fairly authentic Greek Salad. When I have capers I definitely add them with a little of the brine as well. I learned that from my Greek husband, Kostas. In Greece, instead of dressing they often use just olive oil and oregano but we always added a little red wine vinegar too. You could also add a bit of green pepper if you like. Also important would be the quality of the feta and the oil. I would get a feta made with goat and/or sheep's milk as the typical grocery store feta is not nearly as good and doesn't have the nice texture of the goat or sheep feta. Also, use a first cold pressed extra virgin olive oil.
