I like this aperitif platter; it has a lot of taste and colours. It is also simple and quick to make One of the classics that I like to prepare when we have friends coming over (like this evening), and I am (as usual!) very late!

Ingredients for 6 portions:

  • 1 large cucumber
    1 can of black olives
    1 can of green olives
    1 pack of cherry tomatoes
    1 mozzarella
    Some carrots
    1 lemon juice
    Salt, pepper, « herbes de Provence »
    Standard cottage cheese, or Philadelphia
    1 coffee cup of milk
    1 tablespoon of parsley (fresh or dried)
    Ketchup, mayonnaise and mustard


  • Preparation: 20 mins
  • Cooking: none
  • Rest: none

1- Wash all the vegetables. Peel the carrots, then the cucumber by alternating the bands to keep a little bit of the skin (the vitamins are in the skin thus I always leave some), and cut them into sticks.

2- Cut the mozzarella in small dices, and prick one dice with one cherry tomato on a toothpick, and sprinkle some herbes de provence on them. Also prick black and green olives with toothpicks.

3- Then put everything in small platters, or a big one.


Cocktail dip:

Mix the same amount of ketchup and mayonnaise in a small bowl, with a little bit of mustard.

Cheese dip:

Add the milk little by little to the cottage cheese with the lemon juice, the parsley, salt and pepper.

      Le chef valide ! 😛 Par contre je n’en mettrai vraiment pas beaucoup, pour éviter les incidents techniques lors de la dégustation.
      Verdict attendu avec impatience ! 🙂
