~ 2 inch piece cucumber,
cut into sticks
~ 3 feta stuffed peppers

large pitta bread
(or 2 small)

To spruce up the hummus, swirl the top with the back of a spoon, and add a dash of extra virgin olive oil and some pine nuts. Place on the platter.
Add a bowl of marinated olives, a few thin wedges of potato tortilla, some cucumber sticks, and some feta stuffed peppers.
Bake the falafel for around 15 minutes, until crispy, or as instructed on the packet. Toast the pitta bread under the grill (broiler), then cut into wedges. Add to the platter.
Cut the halloumi into slices, and cook in a dry frying pan or griddle pan (you can find more details about how to cook halloumi perfectly
). Add to the platter.
Fill in any gaps on the platter with cherry tomatoes, either whole or halved.
