Grilled Vegetable & Potato Platter with Lemon-Feta Dip and Roasted Pepper Hummus! Easy, summer entertaining, make a giant platter of grilled vegetables and dip ahead of time for no-fuss dinner.
This vegetable platter! Friends, this is a must-make for late-summer entertaining. I made a version of this two times last week when my family was visiting, and we all couldn’t get enough. Vibrant, fresh, and easy. My buzz words for this time of year.
Since we are soaking up every minute on our deck until Fall comes, I simply serve a overflowing platter these grilled vegetables and potatoes with a bottle of chilled rosé. Maybe some pita bread on the side if someone’s in the mood for sandwich. That’s it! Perfect to pick bites from in between conversations, chasing toddlers and soaking up summer.
The star of this platter are the mini grilled potatoes by The Little Potato Company. If you haven’t tried these yet, this platter is the perfect introduction. No scrubbing, no peeling, no slicing. Simply toss the potatoes with a bit of oil and seasoning and grill to tender.
BL and I both love how easy they are to prepare and they go well with just about every meal. Since summertime equals veggie burgers on the grill at least weekly in our house, these grilling potatoes have become our go-to side dish.
See also: potatoes are a good for you food. Sadly, they get an unfair reputation, as I know many of my clients have questions about them. Limiting french fries? Sure. Limiting baked, grilled, steamed or roasted potatoes? Why? The humble potato is a great source of potassium, calcium and magnesium, which increase vasodilation and therefore can help to naturally decrease blood pressure. So, if you’ve been avoiding potatoes, please welcome them back into your diet.
A sucker for a good dip, I served these vegetables with store-bought hummus and a homemade lemon-feta dip. I made a similar spread for these beet & arugula sandwiches, loved the salty flavor so much that I knew it would be great for this platter.
Though, these potatoes and vegetables are so flavorful that you don’t even need the dip if it’s too much fuss. Or, do what I did the next day: spread the lemon-feta mix on a pita bread, then stuff with leftover vegetables and potatoes. With a platter as gorgeous as this, I’m definitely of the mind-set to cook once, eat as many times as possible.
