Mediterranean Pita Platter

This Mediterranean Pita Platter is incredibly easy, extremely loaded, and absolutely beautiful.  You will impress your guests with this display without a doubt.  What is better than loads of hummus, pita, feta (optional for vegans), veggies, garbanzo beans, arugula, and balsamic?  Nothing, that’s what.  Well, almost nothing!  As usual, I had a lot of stuff left over in the fridge that I simply could not let go to waste.  What was, in my mind, going to be a simple meal turned into this incredible looking platter!  Before I knew it, I was adding more and more, then finally, grabbing my paella pan (yes, I love serving platters in here, check out my nacho pics as well), and voila!  A star was born in the form of this gorgeous platter.  Get down with your inner Greek (or Greek inspired) self and see visions of Santorini! I mean, hey, why not?! Disclaimer: Night shots below, sadly.
