Method

Preparation

Set the table.

Put the oil, lemons, bread, salt and pepper out.

To serve

Every person has a plate.

Each person pours a little oil onto the plate, garnishes with salt, pepper lemon juice according to taste.

Each person dips bread and eats.

Variation

Put a teaspoon of Za'atar herb and spice mix beside the oil, and dip the oily bread into the Za'atar.

Definitely some wine goes well.

A few Zaytoun FAIRTRADE olives.

A few small chunks of feta cheese.

Greek Meze Variation

Provide each person with a small bowl, and serve as above with the addition of balsamic vinegar.

A little vinegar and oil is poured into the bowl, and the bread is dipped through the oil into the sweet tartness of the balsamic vinegar.

Meze: Serve with Retsina, or a sharp FAIRTRADE white.
