Simple Mediterranean Appetizers
Simple Mediterranean Appetizers. Melissa will have a field day with this one, just watch. “Does it really count if both dips are store bought?” Well, in my case…yes. Let me explain.
First of all, I have a true authentic hummus recipe which was passed down from previous generations. I make it, but I don’t share it. It’s just that simple.
Secondly, I have made Tzatziki sauce before, but I’ll be honest….it doesn’t hold a candle to the taste and convenience of the one I buy at Costco, so why bother?
Lastly, we have ALL been to homes where people serve store bought dips (which we do, too). However, the dips are still in the container in which they were bought (which we would never do). The real point of this post is to remind people that store bought dips are really ok, just turn them over into your pretty dish before serving. It makes all the difference!
Level of Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Prep Time – 5 min; Cook Time – 10 min.
Hummus of choice
Preparing Simple Mediterranean Appetizers:
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees. Transfer hummus into small serving bowl. Sprinkle with paprika for color. Transfer Tzatziki sauce into a separate serving bowl. Place the Naan directly onto oven rack. Flip after 3-4 minutes. Take the Naan out and carefully cut into triangles. Dip the bread into the sauce or hummus for a nice mouth watering appetizer.
Ok, so I’m not going to freak out over the store bought appetizers. But, isn’t this ‘Greek’ week? You’ve expanded to include all of the Mediterranean, oh and why not throw in the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal for the Naan!
And you say I change the rules. Seriously!? Portioning a whole beef tenderloin into individual steaks is not breaking the rules. Maybe the theme for the week should have been ‘stuff that didn’t originate in the US’ instead. ~Melissa
You know geography was never my strongest subject. Give me a break! I told you that “Greek Week” just sounded nice. I’ll chose my words more carefully next time ~ Denise
