Pairing platters are great ways to provide food for entertaining, as they are easy to put together, look beautiful, and give people plenty of options for a “grazing” style gathering. Plus this (summer) is the season for the best and most bountiful seasonal produce for the most gorgeous healthy pairing platter. We hit our local farmers’ market in Edmond, OK, for grass fed dairy and fresh veggies. Of course, some pairing platters are healthier than others, and this one is ultra healthy without being boring or “in your face” about healthy choices. We at 90/10 Nutrition firmly believe that just because you have friends over doesn’t mean you can’t eat great too!
The options with a pairing platter are endless, so we’ve just jotted down some ideas here to make it easy to add to the online meal planner and generate the shopping list. Also, to that end, we’ve replicated our Easy Hummus recipe and our Whipped Feta Dip recipe right here on this page–no linking back and forth to find multiple recipes! But if you want either of those recipes on their own, just click the linked text above!

I actually made this very one, the one in the pictures, when Ryan came to Oklahoma to visit me and discuss the future of 90/10 Nutrition. (No, wine still isn’t being moved to the green tier, but I’m still working on him!) We enjoyed this like crazy even though it was just the two of us. We had it as a main dish, but of course it works as a snack or appetizer as well.
One thing I love about pairing platters is there is almost no prep. A little bit of blending/food processing if you’re making your own hummus and Whipped Feta Dip, and maybe a tiny bit of slicing, but for the most part, it’s just assembly with this healthy pairing platter.
