Here I used a variety of fresh vegetables, some I lightly seared in olive oil and seasoned simply with salt and fresh pepper. I added a few deli items such as stuffed Peppadews with artichokes, marinated beans, pickled mushrooms and olives. Lay it all out on leaf lettuce and endive. Add some fresh mozzarella if you like. Pass around some vinaigrette dressing and everyone enjoys a fresh salad.
Fresh vegetables included:
- Yellow squash
- Yellow peppers (use any variety)
- Asparagus, lightly steamed then immersed in cold ice water
- Tomatoes and basil
- Portobello mushrooms
- Garden cukes
