This creamy, luscious, salty dip is balanced nicely by crunchy veggies (or pita chips, if that's more your speed). Stack a serving bowl on top of a platter to create a fuss-free and beautiful presentation.

Roasted fish is one of those foolproof dishes that yields tremendous flavor with every bite. The acidity from the lemons brings major flavor to the entire dish, while the sliced veggies and herbs get all caramelized and juicy. Plus, serving it on a platter makes it look even fancier!

Fresh, bright, and lemony, tabbouleh is great alongside fish or grilled chicken. It’s jam-packed with herbs, which not only brightens each bite but also adds major color to your tabletop setup.
