Mediterranean Bites

Posted June 3rd, 2014

The warmer it gets, the less time I want to spend in the kitchen. Lately, G and I have been craving lighter meals, comprised of smaller plates that require little to no cooking. We love the simplicity and rich flavors of Mediterranean dishes and I recently put together some Greek-inspired appetizers (that ended up becoming our entire dinner), which could also serve as a nice alternative to a traditional cheese plate. I used mostly store bought products and added a few simple tweaks to give it a slightly homemade feel. For those nights when you don't want to think about cooking, it's a quick and healthy alternative to ordering in pizza.

Store-bought hummus drizzled with olive oil and a touch of smoky paprika.

Homemade tzatziki based off Ina's recipe.

Tabbouleh salad with a fresh squeeze of lemon.

Kalamata olives, Persian cucumbers, and stuffed grape leaves 

Toasted pita bread, brushed with olive oil and dusted with sea salt.

Pita chips topped with fresh feta.
