I had three friends over for dinner on Saturday and pulled together a tasty dinner of Lebanese-influenced meze, light appetizers. I made so many of them that there was no threat of leaving the diners hungry, for sure!
Here are the delicious, fresh dishes we ate:
Falafel (bought from Vitamingarten)
Red beet hummus
Fresh veggies for dipping
Homemade pita chips (sorry, Stacy, but mine are so much better ;)
Spargel strawberry salad (this is German)
Unsweetened iced tea (I'm a Northerner so we don't ruin it with boatloads of sugar ;)
With the exception of the tzatziki and falafel, I made everything else from scratch and dang was it delicious! I impressed myself, especially since I'm not a person with domestic skillz. My friends enjoyed everything, but didn't talk too much during the meal. They were too busy chewing. All in all, it was a success and we enjoyed one another's company and a very fresh, summery dinner.
