Recipe Notes

Sharing summer entertaining platters has become my only way to entertain this summer!

They’re very indigent, not sure what word you meant by indigent colorful, bright and there’s something for everyone! Always assemble your platter with a diverse combo of veggies, fruits, bread and condiments. I’ve also included feta cheese here because it pairs beautifully, but that’s optional.

Using hummus as the centre of your platter is genius because everything around it pairs well with it. So think the chicken, veggies, fruits or just bread. They all taste great with hummus alone!

This makes your life easier, because Sabra hummus has so many flavors to choose from and is readily available across the country. So all you need to plan for is the chicken, veggies, bread and fruit.

Using chicken breasts is a lifesaver since they don’t need marinating and grill time is about 15 minutes!

Adding some of your veggies or fruits on the grill is also a brilliant contrast of textures.

It’s great when you and your guests can assemble different BBQ platters, make your own BBQ wraps and have a relaxed fun meal.

Entertaining with a huge platter like this looks like a lot of work, while actually it’s not! It’s super easy to put together, so quick and yet feeds lots of people!
