Chickpea salad and thank goodness for the chickpeas! They give you the sustenance to stay fuller for longer otherwise you would most certainly be going back for something else to eat. As much as we love beautifully colored lettuce, bright fresh carrots, beans, those cherry tomatoes that seem to go with everything and the queen of veggie land the grand avocado they don’t fill you up for long. At least not me hence some kind of protein.
There’s nothing quite like a platter to bring some ambiance with it. Whether its a sea food platter, cold meats and crackers/bread as an antipasto idea with pesto either way platters are a little way of celebrating the gathering of people and food. Using platters as a centerpiece even in smaller servings as crostini creates a closeness and sharing as opposed to having your own designated plate and chair. This is more informal and friendlier. Anyway, enough rambling, I’m sure that you get what I am saying!
