Quick Dishes for the Meze Platter

Feta cheese, red peppers, a couple of garlic cloves and some great tasting olive oil is really all that’s needed to throw together a quick and easy dip with Mediterranean leanings.

The biggest prep involved is roasting the peppers.

Cut them into quarters, removing the inner membrane and seeds. The shapes make them easier to achieve an even roasting.
Once evenly roasted, let them rest on the counter or in a plastic bag, making the roasted peel easier to remove.
Dry your lovely little fillets and chop into small cubes. Forget about being perfect, any little charred bits are okay, as they add a rustic element to your final product.
Crumble feta cheese into the mix along with a couple of crushed garlic cloves, some salt and finally, the tasty olive oil. Not too much, not too little, just the right amount.
Serve with slices of fresh baguette, or toast the slices for crostini – very authentic. I also recommend Triscuits for a crunchy vibe. For extra flavour flav, try adding freshly chopped basil or fresh dill to the pepper mixture. The world’s your meze platter. Knock yourself out.
