A Few Small Plates

Here is a small collection of photographs of what I call ‘small plates’ — in reality, they are appetizers or small salads that are sized for one person. Perhaps some of these might spark your imagination, or give you an idea for a meal at some point in the future. Two of the captions below contain links to previously posted recipes. All were from dinners from within the previous four months.

I hope you enjoy these, and wish you a happy Sunday wherever you are in the world.
