Sorry, no etymologies found.
MEDITERRANEAN KIWI said ... since i've been food blogging, i've read up on so many ways to use arugula (rocket is one of my 'pot plants'!), and id have to say, rocket with the thinnest slices of salty cheese (graviera, roquefort, parmesan) and balsamic is my favorite use of this nutty, crunchy, spicy herb
To balance the squash's sweetness, I added caramelized onions and nutty graviera cheese.
Each meal is accompanied by chunks of white cheeses like kalathaki or feta, or harder cheeses like melixloro, ladotyri, or graviera.
Greek shrimp saganaki varies regionally but almost always involves some form of cheese, from a creamy but salty feta to a firmly grated graviera, or a combination of cheeses somewhere in between.
If you wanted to substitute another Greek cheese, graviera is milder but still quite nice.
