Thanksgiving Inspired Appetizers
Start the festivities off right with one of these mouthwatering small plates.
If you eat early on Thanksgiving, keep it simple by offering a collection of raw veggies and this Spicy Yogurt Dip, also great with flatbread on the side.

Mediterranean Diet Soup and Salad Ideas
We typically have a large salad available for holiday meals. It’s a great way to sneak in some extra veggies but also have options for people that have dietary restrictions, allergies, etc. Plus the salads don’t require any prime stove top or oven space so it’s a win win!
Soup can be tricky if you have a large gathering. However for more intimate holiday meals, a nice pot of soup might be a great meal addition. We shared one of our absolute favorites that comes right from the store!
Mediterranean Diet Inspired Sides
Side dishes are my favorite part of most meals. Anyone else? These side dishes are all Mediterranean diet inspired and easy to prepare.
Cocktails and Mocktails
We love a festive cocktail (or mocktail) during the holidays. These are some of our favorite fall beverages…
