Mediterranean Mezze Platter Recipes

A variety of dishes, including strawberry baked brie, bacon-shrimps and the lively mezzanine, are eaten when hosted by my team.

A mezze plate is served in one of my favorite local restaurants on their menu and I will order this any time I go. This mix of grilled pita bread, cookie, olives, yogurt and cheese is the most wonderful. With each meeting, I'm making my own sampler platter, and people are Nuts about it!

What does mezze platter mean?

The term "meze" refers to a bite or snack and resembles the Spanish tapas. A mezzanine dish is home to a variety of foods which are commonly eaten in the Mediterranean and Middle East cuisines.

How do you make a mezze platter?

Arrange on a wide plate various plates, cheeses, olives, raw veggies and pita bread triangles. You should make your own Mediterranean delicacies using bought products like hummus, dolmas, and tabbouleh. Add cool herbs to the platter, then cover and chill for up to 4 hours, or serve as soon as possible.

Tips for a perfect platter

  • I like to have at least 2 dips, with hummus, baba ganoush, Tzatziki, feta dip and mohammara as some of the most common ones. Add olive oil drizzle and fresh parsley on top of the dips for added flavor and color.
  • Feta cheese is the best known cheese in a mezze dish. Through marinate cubes of feta from olive oil and pulled flakes of red pepper and parsley, I want to take things a step further.
  • Add flavor and crunch to new vegetables. Tomatoes and cucumbers are traditional ingredients but revolutionary, red bell pepper and baby carrots are also fantastic options.
  • Don't hesitate to buy pre-made dolmas, or make your own.
  • Some of the platter's pieces can be packed up to 2 days early, including dolms, hummus, tabbouleh and baba ganoush. You can buy them at the grocery shop if you do not want to prepare your own dips and salads.
  • Pick a variety of black and green olives in various sizes and shapes from the olive bar at your nearest foodstore.

Mediterranean Tapas Ideas

While the essentials such as pita bread and hummus are used with most tapas, you can add any of the mediterranean ingredients to your meal.

  • New fruit, like orange wedges, half figs, bombs, or raisins.
  • Grilled vegetables, eggplant, courge, or bell peppers. Grilled veggy.
  • Healing foods include prosciutto or salami.
  • Pickled vegetables, like cloves of garlic, asparagus or green beans.
  • Pistachio nuts, walnuts or almonds.
  • Snorkels, crackers or pita chips or breadsticks.
  • Heartier fare, meatballs and falafel included.

With a mezze plate, you can't go wrong. They're easy to make, they look great, and for everyone else!
