Much like antipasto in Italy, or tapas in Spain, there is a strong tradition of small plates in Greece called “meze”. Meze plates are small, appetizer sized dishes that are truly representative of the fresh and delicious flavors of Greece, like this traditional roasted Red Pepper and Feta Spread by Mt. Vikos.
Made from flavorful roasted sweet red peppers blended with authentic Greek feta cheese and Greece’s version of ricotta, Mizithra cheese. Mizithra, a fresh cheese made with milk and whey, gives this spread a fabulous texture. Whipped with extra virgin olive oil, sugar, sea salt, spices and herbs, this spread is amazing spread over toasted bread or crackers, serve as a dip, crumbled over a salad, pizza or tossed with pasta. Pair with some ouzo and you’ll feel you’re in a taverna in Capri.
