It’s game time!  Are you bored with typical snack offerings?  Try making a Serbian snack tray.  It’s easy to do, cheap and adds an interesting cultural twist to any party food.  It’s also a great late night treat and helps settle a stomach after drinking:)

Serbian Snack Tray

Ingredients

Lunch Meats (pepperoni, roast beef, ham, your choice)

Pimentos (olives stuffed with peppers)

Hard Boiled Eggs

Feta Cheese

Peperoncini (the little spicy green peppers)

Instructions

On a large serving plate or tray, lay down a thin layer of meats.  Generously toss on the pimentos (stuffed olives) and the peppers, being sure to drain them of any water first.  Placing them on a towel will do the trick.  Add small cubes of feta (smaller than 1″ x 1″) and wedges of hard boiled eggs.  Place ample toothpicks for snacking and serve!

Lunch Meat TIP: Yes, lunch meats have nitrates, which are proven to cause cancer.  You can, however, select lunch meats that also contain sodium erythorbate, which is said to temper the effects of nitrates.  If you’re totally anti-nitrates, you can try meat cured in celery juice OR make fresh sausages & chicken or turkey and slice it up.  To each his (or her) own!
