Before the Easter Feast… we need a light and colorful Vegetarian Mezze platter!!

Vegetarian Mezze Platter from (@whatsgabycookin)

A few years ago we did an epic Greek Easter brunch at one of my best friends from college house. It was enough to make me want to pack my bags, move to Greece, and take up residence somewhere by the sparkling blue sea. It was everything you could have imagined… various meats, cheese, olives, snacks… the list goes on. They laid it out for us in a few courses and I never wanted to leave. I’m incredibly sad to report that they have since moved our of LA so our extraordinary Greek Easter doesn’t happen anymore. Who’s Greek and wants to invite me over? I’LL BRING THE FLAMING CHEESE and the Vegetarian Mezze!

So rather than sulk and be sad, I’ve just started making a little appetizer situation of all my favorite nibbles ’n things to munch on before the actual Easter brunch takes place… hence my Vegetarian Mezze appetizer situation. It’s a combination of artichoke hearts, marinated garlic, feta, pesto, olives, tabouli, hummus, tzatziki, dolmades and everything else you could throw together for an appetizer board of epic proportions. And while yes, you would serve this to a group for a large gathering, it also makes the perfect dinner for 2 or 4 when you’re rolling with family only! This Sunday you can bet will consist of this Vegetarian Mezze platter and a carrot cake…. and that’s about it!

    Oooooh want. Before moving to LA I lived in Astoria, Queens, where I ate Greek food daily. Now I hardly touch it here…sad face.

      RIGHT??? Why aren’t there better Greek restaurants here in LA!

    OMG! This platter is amazing! I’m Greek and I use to serve these appetizers all the time but I’ve never thought of putting everything together on the same platter. That’s the way I’m going to serve on the next gathering. Thanks!

    Thank you for the inspiration! I threw one together on Easter and it was a great success with the half vegetarian dinner group. I could not find stuffed grape leaves so I added roasted eggplant chunks and asparagus. Also no marinated feta so I used mozzarella balls.

    I’m in Virginia and we don’t have a DeLallo’s that we can pick up at. Can you provide the exact ounces of each product.

    After seeing your platter my taste buds are running wild. It is absolutely gorgeous and I can’t wait to make it.

    • Gaby

  27. Kris

    Making this soon! What are the reddish items between the artichokes and the feta and olives? Looks like maybe sun dried tomatoes.
