Are you ready for snacks upon snacks upon snacks?!

Greek Inspired Antipasto Platter | @hbharvest

Cause I think it’s about that time.

You guys, I am pretty sure there’s nothing better than a giant spread of appetizers. I only recently got into making and eating appetizers, but I am now HOOKED. Not only are they fun to make and put together, but umm, appetizers/snacks may just be some of the most delicious foods…

Hello, cheese, hummus, veggies and fruits.

All my favorites!

Here’s the deal. This week is clearly shaping up to be all about summertime food, cookout recipes and fuss free cooking. Basically everything you need to have a KILLER summer AND do all the entertaining…and eating… you please! YESS. The week before Memorial Day is all about preparation around here, eeer, well I mean preparation in the sense of breaking out all the summer recipes and just getting excited, you know?

In reality, I am not prepping a dang thing at the moment. Currently I am running around like the crazy person that I am doing too many things and trying look somewhat put together…not going to lie, I don’t look put together, but then again I don’t really care either (I mean really, whose going to see me?).

Come tomorrow I may try to like brush my hair or something, since I will be in New York attempting to teach two-hundred plus people about food photography…YIKES. Speaking of which, a lot of you asked why I am headed to New York. I’m going to be co-hosting an event with FeedFeed, Samsung and a few other bloggers on food photography. I’ll be making a recipe and talking through my photo process…should be very interesting. Also, you should know, I have never talked in front of a crowd before…again YIKES, but times like four!

So yeah, that’s what I will be doing tomorrow. Then I’ll be hopping right back on a plane tomorrow night only to get home in the middle night and drive an hour and a half back up into the mountains. Why… because um work, and um, I am so behind, and um, HELP!

Oddly, I’m not stressing out too horribly, although I should be… give me a few more hours, it’s gonna kick in.

This Greek Inspired Antipasto Platter.

I’m kind of OBSESSED with it. I mean, so many good things all in one place, plus endless amounts of carbs for dipping and scooping. So my kind of thing. 🙂

Here’s how this works. Typically an antipasto platter is made of heavy thinly sliced Italian deli meats, veggies and mozzarella cheese. I took that idea and twisted it slightly more in the Greek direction, so that it’s now kind of a Greek meets Italian appetizers. Basically it now has EVERYTHING.

Okok, so in no particular order, let’s go through the platter…

…goat cheese stuffed sweet cherry peppers

…assorted deli meats

…marinated artichokes

…roasted red bell peppers

…sun-dried tomatoes

…marinated feta cheese

…marinated olives


…fresh fruits + veggies

…fresh pitas, pita chips and breadsticks…duh

See, EVERYTHING you need for an amazing platter!!

Best part is that this is really simple and quick to throw together. Most of the ingredients are actually store-bought or fresh and then I’m giving you my two easy recipes for marinated feta cheese and marinated olives. Don’t let the ingredient list freak you out, it’s just a mix match of ingredients. All you need to do is arrange them on a platter and call it a day.

Done and DONE.

OH and the whole platter can be made in advance, covered and kept in the fridge until ready to serve. Just add the pitas, chips and bread sticks before serving and you’ll be good to go. Simple enough, right? And perfect for Memorial day!

Nutritional information is only an estimate. The accuracy of the nutritional information for any recipe on this site is not guaranteed.


  • 15-18 sweet cherry peppers
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 1 pound assorted thinly sliced deli meats (I use prosciutto + soppressata + salami)
  • 1 jar marinated artichokes
  • 1 jar roasted red bell peppers
  • 1 jar oil packed sun-dried tomatoes OR sun-dried tomato pesto
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella or buffalo mozzarella rolled in fresh herbs
  • marinated feta recipe follows
  • marinated olives recipe follows
  • 1 cup homemade or store bought hummus + olive oil for drizzling
  • fresh basil + radishes + cherry tomatoes or other fresh veggies
  • apricots + strawberries + fig jam + honey or other fruits
  • fresh pita + pita chips + bread sticks or other breads/crackers

Marinated Feta

  • 6 ounces block feta cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup fresh herbs (I like thyme basil, oregano)
  • pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
  • olive oil enough to cover the cheese

Marinated Olives


  • Take the sweet cherry peppers and gently stuff them with the goat cheese.
  • Arrange all the ingredients on a large platter or wood cutting board. Drizzle a little olive oil over the hummus. Serve with assorted breads and crackers so people can mix and match their bites depending in their tastes.

Marinated Feta

  • Add the cubed feta, herbs and crushed red pepper to an 8 ounce or larger glass jar. Pour enough olive oil over top so that the oil completely covers the feta. Screw the lid on the jar and place in the fridge for at least one hour or up to two weeks. Just crumble the feta onto whatever you wish.

Marinated Olives

  • Add the olive oil and garlic to a small saucepan and set over medium low heat. Bring the oil to a simmer and then reduce the heat to LOW. Simmer, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until fragrant. Remove from the heat, stir in olives. Add crushed red pepper to taste. Can be served warm or chilled. Olives can be stored in a glass jar in the fridge for up to 1 week.

  1. Looks amazing! Being half Greek I make something similar! Also thank you for calling it Greek!! I feel like all too often I see recipes that are clearly Greek-labeled Mediterranean. Not sure why-but thank you! One thing though-I’ve been to Greece four times and have half my family from there, I’ve never seen hummus in Greece! I think in the US for some reason Greek food is very often linked with middle eastern. But you really do not see this reflected in Greece. ( aside from things like baklava etc which are eaten across the Middle East-I’ve seen people say the Turkish occupation brought such things to Greece-but I’ve also heard that those types of desserts spread from Greece during the time of Alexander the Great. The facts are most likely lost to history) thank you so much! Keep up the beautiful recipes and photography!

    1. Hi Maria! I am so glad you like this platter! It is funny that you have never seen it in Greece.. I think the US does associate it with Greece. Anyway, I hope you try this out and love it! Thank you!

  2. Beautiful! Contrast of colors on your platter plus variety of shapes…not only show your artistic talents but you good taste. Well done! I will enjoy your spin, this I know for sure.

  3. Marvelous, what a website it is! This blog presents

  5. Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after
    browsing through some of the posts I realized it’s new to me.
    Nonetheless, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back

  6. I am actually delighted to glance at this webpage posts which consists of plenty of valuable information, thanks for providing these
    kinds of data.

  7. I’ve been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view,
    if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
