  • Hard boiled eggs typically one per person
  • Stuffed grape leaves
  • Sliced green peppers
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Sliced cucumbers
  • Black olives
  • Green olives
  • Dried apricots
  • Good quality cured meat like salami
  • Good quality salty cheese like feta
  • Good quality creamy cheese like mozzarella
  • Sumac salt and pepper, for sprinkling
  • Chopped fresh flat leaf parsley for garnish


  • Cut the egg(s) in quarters and place in the center of the plate.
  • Arrange the remaining items on the plate around the egg.
  • Garnish the egg with sumac, salt and pepper, and sprinkle the entire plate with flatleaf parsley.


  • If you are only making one serving, you only need a few of each item. If you're making a platter to feel multiple people, assume 2-4 pieces of each item per person. With so many edibles on the plate, you'll fill up fast!
  • To make this vegetarian, simply omit the meat and add an additional hard boiled egg and some extra cheese.
  • If you want a little bit more sweetness, serve it with a dollop of chocolate hazelnut spread and some bread or cut up fruit to spread it on.
