Make a Mediterranean Antipasto Platter filled with Greek-inspired flavors like olives, feta cheese, and Greek yogurt, for your next party! It’s been hot here this week and I’m loving it! With summer winding down I’m soaking up as much sun as I can before fall gets here. We’ve been grilling out and having people over all summer long and we’re looking forward to our annual Labor Day cookout. I can’t wait to have everyone over! We’ll be doing a lot of grilling out of course but I made a rule this year. Whatever can’t be cooked on the grill has to be served cold because the idea of being cooped up in the house standing over a hot stove while everyone else is partying outside in the sunshine just doesn’t sound fun!
This simple Mediterranean Antipasto Platter fits the bill and it is on the menu. It is easy to make, totally delicious, and doesn’t require one bit of cooking. A little feta cheese, some olives, roasted red peppers, thinly sliced salami, Dolmas (stuffed grape leaves), and pita bread are all placed on a big platter with Greek yogurt for dipping. I’ve been using the new Chobani Meze Dips and I love them! Chobani Meze Dips are a delicious combination of globally inspired flavors made with a mix of real veggies, herbs and spices, and Greek Yogurt. Inspired by the Turkish word for “tasty, flavorful snack,” Chobani Mezé Dips go perfectly with the flavors on my Mediterranean antipasto platter. They are made with only natural, non-GMO ingredients and they come in 4 flavors, Roasted Red Pepper, Chili Lime, Three Pepper Salsa, and Smoked Onion Parmesan.
You can find all of the ingredients for the platter at your local grocery store, either at the salad bar, or in the jarred food aisle. There really is no wrong way to make it. I’ve named off some of the things I use most often but you could also add artichoke hearts, pepperoncinis, grilled eggplant, marinated mushrooms, etc. You can even add some cucumbers and radishes if you want something crunchy to dip. You’ll find Chobani Mezé Dip at Target, Meijer, or Walmart in the refrigerated section. It comes in a 10 oz. container so it is great for sharing and they have 80% less fat and 65% fewer calories than the leading hummus! . I grabbed one of each flavor and I’ve been making up a smaller version of this platter for a light dinner on nights when it’s just too warm to turn on the oven.
Don’t stress yourself out cooking up a storm in the kitchen this summer. This is the perfect appetizer for your upcoming Labor Day party. There is sure to be a little something for everyone and you’re guests are going to love it. Grab a variety of Mediterranean ingredients, some pita bread, and one or two of your favorite Chobani Mezé Dips, place them on a big platter and then go enjoy the party!
