What are some of your favorite light refreshments?

I'm planning a special event and would like ideas for light refreshments. I'm thinking crackers & cheese, fruits/veggies, what else? what kind of drinks should be there as well?

  • Crisped pita chips with hummus and baba ganoush for dipping. Both dips have olive oil as an ingredient, but an additional drizzle for presentation is good, and for extra flavouring a sprinkle of sumac.
    For crackers and cheese don't kill the cheese with heavily flavoured crackers. Water biscuit stuff.
    Fruit goes well on a cheese plate, grapes, figs, maybe dates.
    Also web search for wine pairings with the cheeses you plan to serve. My fav is blue cheese with port.

  • A 6' fluorescent bulb can be quite tasty with the proper condiments, and is very certainly my favorite light refreshment.

  • Fruit platter and a cheese, cracker and dip selection should cover most people's tastes
