Appetizer and Dessert Recipes for a Mediterranean Diet
2 of 4
Depending on the exact region of the Mediterranean, small appetizers like Italian Bruschetta are used in different ways. In some areas, dinner isn’t served until 9 p.m. or later, leaving a good amount of time from the end of the work day; small appetizers are often served as a snack between work and dinnertime to compensate.
In other regions, people serve several appetizers at once as the dinner meal. However, most homes don’t serve this course regularly, and they reserve lavish appetizers for parties and special celebrations.
