olivecheeseandrosemaryshutterstock_13229164A perfect Thanksgiving appetizer!

  • An assortment of olives, whole, pitted and cured (we like Nicoise, Castelvetrano and Chili Flecked!)
  • a few sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • Cubed feta cheese
  • Quartered pita bread (warmed is nice!)
  • Some good quality olive oil
  • Capers, salt cured or brined, drained and rinsed
  • A smattering of of mesclun leaves, nasturtium flowers and any other edible or attractive flower you have!

Assemble any or all of the above ingredients loosely on a large and shallow platter and drizzle with olive oil and rosemary for a show stopping appetizer plate.  Consider adding a few of the extra pieces of persimmon from the Persimmon salad too!
