School is back in session which means busy mornings and even busier evenings. Easy dinner options are more important than ever, and you can build the perfect easy mezze platter to simplify your nights and satisfy everyone in your family! The best part about this dinner is that it can be easily packed up for lunch the next day!
Mezze is a style of dining in the Mediterranean, similar to tapas. It’s a collection of both hot and cold dips, spreads and dippers put together to form an entire meal. Kids will love this concept because they can scoop their favorite dips onto their plates and use various vegetables and breads to enjoy. Here are some options to consider for your mezze platter:
- Vegetables: Carrots, sliced cucumbers, red/yellow bell peppers, celery, small tomatoes, sliced radish
- Dips: Different flavors of hummus, Purely Balance™ Tzatziki Ranch, Labneh, Baba Ganoush
- Breads: Naan bread, toasted pita triangles, crackers, lavash bread
- Other: Simply Artisan Feta Cheese Crumbles mixed with Kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, almonds
There are a lot of different options that you can used based on what you and your family enjoy, but it’s a great way for kids to get creative with their own dinner. You can also pack up leftovers or an extra side of your mezze platter for lunch the next day, served with a Homestyle Ranch Dip Singles. Kids will love the variety in their lunch and its fun (and healthy) for adults, too.
Busy fall and school schedules do not mean that you have to skip out on healthy and fun dinners or lunches. Create easy mezze platters once a week and try out different ingredient options each time. Your family will love the variety!
