Easy Mezze Salad

Mezze (or meze) is a style of dining in the Mediterranean and Middle East that consists of an assortment of hot and cold appetizers meant for sharing. Popular elements include kebabs, salad, pita, and dips.

Inspired by this colorful spread, we took many of the delicious elements and combined them into a hearty bowl. This delectable mash-up includes quinoa, leafy greens, veggies, topped with baba ghanouj and hummus, served with warm pita bread. It’s super easy, filling, and full of goodness.

You can use this recipe as a starting point and tailor it to what your family likes. Mix and match with your favorite protein, grains, and veggies!
