Greek Salad Plate
The hot, sunny weather is back and I'm thinking salads!
This Greek Salad Plate included tomato and cucumber salad with feta, hummus with those addictive Trader Joe's Pita Chips, a simple bean salad with canelli beans and capers in a light tomato sauce with feta, pepperoncini, and grilled eggplant. I'm loving the plate idea: five distinct, but complimentary items with a balance of color, texture, and (of course) nutrition. Lots of flavors and tastes, without over-eating.
I'm suddenly loving this plate idea! I recently enjoyed a restaurant dessert plate of four tiny one bite desserts and it was much more satisfying than a larger portion of a single dessert.
So, I'm thinking of hosting my first food blogger round-up and I request your feedback in the comments. Would you be interested in participating in a Food Blogger "My Personal Best Plate" round-up, in which bloggers create their personal best combination of up to 5 items which fit on a single dinner plate and reflect their own specific cooking personalities? The variations could be endless: breakfast plates, chocolate plates, raw vegan plates, green plates, chili plates, cheese plates, dessert plates, English vegetarian plates and even wine bloggers could participate with 5 best things to munch on with my favorite cabernet etc.
Let me know if you think this would be fun and I'll make it happen.
