Stuffed Olives, Herbed Pitta and Homemade Tzatziki
We started the evening off with some stuffed olives, with pitta which I coated in oregano, garlic and olive oil and baked in the oven wrapped in greaseproof paper which had been run briefly under the tap - a Jamie Oliver tip!This I served with homemade tzatziki - my sister's recipe, which has half a grated cucumber with the juice squeezed out, two teaspoons of mint jelly, two finely chopped garlic cloves and about 300g of Greek yoghurt. I also squeezed in the juice of half a lemon.
Harissa Chicken with Rice Salad
Fig and Mozzarella Salad
Pan-fried Asparagus with Shallots
This dish I have made before: Harissa Chicken
|Fig and Mozzarella Salad with a balsamic and apricot jam dressing|
|Asparagus with shallots|
Lemon, Lime and Ginger Tart
A showstopper dessert to be sure. Utterly delicious - I found the recipe for this in the Metro, by Chloe Scott and I couldn't wait to try it - it's light, yet decadent and the zesty flavours make it a perfect end to the evening.
