When the heat is trying cool foods, raw foods are preferable and this is lovely and cooling on a toothpick – take a small piece of watermelon, a raspberry, half or quarter of a strawberry and a blueberry – put out on a plate.
Great for a casual summer lunch. Lay everything out on a big platter and let people help themselves. Per person I would suggest half a chicken breast – sliced or diced (feta cheese for vegetarians). Load up on the veggies – tomatoes (diced), roasted red peppers (from a jar) cut into pieces, black olives (pitted), hard boiled egg, hummus, artichokes, green beans. Serve with vinaigrette
Made these delicious little canapes yesterday to hand round for a family gathering. Everyone loved them!! The Mediterranean flavors work so well together.
Cut feta into slices and then into squares (same size as half of cherry tomato)
Cut cherry tomatoes in half.
Small black olives or larger ones cut in half.
Place tomato on top of feta and place olive on top of the tomato and skewer with a toothpick
