Who doesn’t love to be the hostess with the mostest?! Having a spread fit for royalty doesn’t have to mean spending hours in the kitchen (cuz ain’t nobody got time for that when there’s pumpkin patches and hayrides to be enjoying). Making a Mediterranean Mezze Platter is quick to put together yet impressive to guests, and might I mention, incredibly tasty! By definition, a mezze is an assortment of smaller dishes served as an accompaniment to alcoholic drinks – aka the perfect snack for socializing! It’s like this platter was MADE for happy hour! Without further ado, the perfect Mediterranean Mezze Platter!
I mean, by mezze definition, wine or a drink of some sort should definitely be involved in the matter! 😉
Just a few ideas of things to add to the mezze board: artichokes, stuffed olives, peperoncinis, roasted tomatoes, roasted red peppers, dolma (grape leaves stuffed with rice), and even MORE olives!
Hummus of any flavor is ideal! You can either serve store bought hummus, or make it yourself with our recipe here!
Pita bread or Naan bread is the perfect pairing to dive into this amazing platter!
Tomato on-the-vine can make the spread look rustic and oh-so Pinteresty. Yes, I did just say “Pinteresty”.
Caprese Salad is made with fresh tomato slices, sliced mozzarella, fresh basil, and a balsamic reduction drizzled on top!
A rice or grain based salad (even a pre-made one from Ralphs) adds nice color and texture to the spread!
Feta cheese with olives was one of my fave things to put on top of my bread and hummus that gave it so much added flavor!
This roasted garlic was flavorful and paired fabulously with other items in the spread!
A cilantro yogurt dip was easily made mixing Greek yogurt with a cilantro salad dressing.
This spicy yogurt dip was great for adding a little fire!
Dolma was surprisingly purchased at the salad bar at my local Ralphs! No need for going out and finding grape leaves to fill with rice, Ralphs had it all taken care of for me! Stone ground mustard was also a nice side flavor to add to the mix.
Display everything on serving dishes or board and it’s time to dig in!
So darlings, at your next girls night, family celebration, or double date, impress your guests with this Mediterranean Mezze Platter! Heck, throw a party just for the sake of an excuse to indulge in all of this deliciousness! It’s fab to be festive, and pretty darn tasty too!
