Arakas me Anitho: Dilled Peas with Peppers

In Greek: αρακάς με άνιθο, pronounced ah-rah-KAHS meh AH-nee-thoh

Dilled peas with red and green peppers falls into thelathera group of foods, which means “cooked with oil.” The tastes of the dill, peas, and peppers are wonderfully enhanced by the taste of the oil. I fix this dish with Stewed Chicken with Wine and Peppersbecause the tastes and the colors work so well together.
