Snacky dinners are my jam. I can make all my family happy in one fell swoop when I lay out breads, cheese, meats, veggies, dips, and fruit. As my kids mature, so do our snacky dinners. In fact, my 20-year old recently requested a lot more sophisticated options in our future snacky dinners. To which I say emphatically, “YES!”

This Mediterranean Snack Box is right in that sweet spot. It’s easy to eat, just like a snack box should be, rife with fruits, veggies, meats, bread, and a dip of some kind, in this case, hummus. But, it’s also got a little class and sophistication. Dare I say it’s a little more cosmopolitan than your average snack box of cheese and crackers?

Yes, yes, I do.

This is the snack box that will wow your co-workers and earn you honor and respect from your peers. Best thing? It’s not hard to do! Roast the veggies. That’s it. Roast and assemble.

And eat with relish!

How to make this good and cheap:

Here are some of the strategies you can use to make this recipe more economical:

  • Stock up on ingredients when they are on sale. Instead of paying full price, buy more than you need right now when you see it on sale. Then you always have it when you want it. FYI: Pitas freeze well, so buy them on sale and toss them in your freezer.
  • Bake your own pita bread. Have you tried this yet? Amazing.
  • Make your own hummus. Yummus.
  • Shop the stores that have the best prices. When I did my big grocery store showdown, I learned that Costco has the best price for a lot of the things I buy, but not all. I might get the salami, pita bread, and hummus at Costco, but stock up on veggies on sale at Sprouts. I might grab the olives from ALDI. I just try to work my shopping trips in with errands I’m already running, and keep a specific target price in mind so that I’m not spending more than I should.

How I make this recipe easy:
