Combining savory with seasonal

Enjoy an easy-to-make salad that delivers a refreshing take on the standard side dish.

Salad filled with flavor

Mediterranean Antipasto SaladIt’s easy to forget that salads can include more than vegetables, proteins and dressings. For example, our Mediterranean Antipasto Salad with Green Goddess Dressing combines fresh veggies with a savory array of flavors and tender tortellini. The result is a delicious dish that pairs well with any weekend cookout or family dinner.

Featuring peppers, garbanzo beans and tomatoes, this recipe brings fresh Mediterranean flavors straight to your table. However, there are many other Old World ingredients that can be incorporated into your favorite meals.

Eggplant

Breaded, fried, roasted, grilled—eggplant is a versatile food that’s been a long-time staple in Mediterranean cuisine. That doesn’t mean it’s reserved for one type of palate. There are plenty of flavorful eggplant-centric recipes that venture into new territories, including one of our own.

Olive Oil

Olive oil has become a standard ingredient in dishes across the world. However, Mediterranean countries like Italy and Greece have always been particularly fond of it. From pastas to pitas, it’s been used in nearly every dish you can think of. It’s also the key to warming up your tortillas.

Seafood

Considering Mediterranean food gets its name from the Mediterranean Sea, it should come as no surprise that ingredients like fish and shrimp are mainstays. But these items aren’t limited to European dishes. A great example is this recipe for Lime-Grilled Fish Tacos.
