Catering by Chrisetta: Poker Tournament

Greek Salad

I was all jazzed up about this Greek themed catering event. Greek food happens to be my favorite, simple ingredients with delightful flavors.  On the menu:
- Fig & Apricot Quinoa Salad
- Greek Salad
- Green Salad (Arugula, Endive, and Romaine)
- Grilled Chicken Kebabs marinated in Greek Yogurt infused with Greek spices
- Grilled Chicken Kebabs rubbed in a unique blend of cinnamon, cumin, and I can't tell you the rest
- Tzatziki sauce with Naan
- Crudités platter and Pita chips with Hummus
- Bowls of Nuts & Olives
- Fig Newtons
- Shortbread cookies served with Apricot Spread

Thanks to my mentor and friend, Veronica, and Edith for having me serve their friends. It was a delicious time!

As always, I hand chopped the vegetables for the Crudités platter. Fennel bulb, carrots, tomatoes, squash, zucchini, red and orange bell peppers served with Hummus

Greek Goodness! Naan, Feta cheese, Kalamata olives, Hummus, and mint leaves
