If you suddenly find yourself with a number of people coming over to your house or you’ve been too busy at work to prepare any type of meal for that event you’ve had coming up for months now and are too embarrassed to cancel, then don’t fret!
This Greek mezedes dish is a quick-and-easy meal that has something for everyone, such as meat, veggies, pita bread and great dips, while its elegance will make you look like you’ve spent hours in the kitchen.
The term “mezze” comes from the Greek word for finger food, which is precisely what this dish is all about. Small portions of great food that will leave your guests more than satisfied.
All you’ll need to set up your platter is:
- Some cut up cucumbers.
- Feta cheese.
- Grilled haloumi cheese with lemon.
- Kalamata olives.
- Dolmadakia (Stuffed vine leaves).
- Skordalia (garlic and potato dip).
- Taramosalata (fish roe dip).
- Grilled calamari or octopus.
- Greek traditional meatballs (keftedakia).
- Pork souvlaki skewers.
- Easy marinated eggplant.
Remember to use a very large dish to place all this on and to provide your guests with smaller dishes so they can serve themselves. Enjoy!
