  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • little olive oil

    Olive oil

    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • tub of olives



    Widely grown all over the Mediterranean, where they've been cultivated since biblical times…

  • 2-3 heads chicory



    Also known as endive, chicory is a forced crop, grown in complete darkness, which accounts for…

  • any Middle Eastern or Turkish-style nibbles you like (we used Spinach falafel from Waitrose and Butternut squash parcels and Koftas from Marks & Spencer)

For the feta dip

  • 200g pack feta cheese
  • 200g Greek yogurt
  • few dill leaves


  1. To make the dip, whizz the feta and yogurt in a food processor until smooth, then scrape into a serving bowl and chill.

  2. To serve, warm flatbreads or pitta and cook any nibbles, following pack instructions. Scrape houmous into a serving dish, scatter with the seeds and drizzle with oil. Scatter feta dip with chopped dill and a little black pepper. Separate chicory leaves and serve everything in the middle of the table.
