A Cheese Board Alternative: Mediterranean Mezze Platter for Girls Night

Mediterranean Mezze Platter essentials featured by top LA lifestyle blogger, Alicia Tenise

ICYMI: I’m traveling quite a bit this fall. However, whenever I’m home, I try my absolute best to spend time with my friends in Los Angeles and meet new people. After all, I just moved here a few months ago, so now’s the ideal time to foster solid relationships!

As much as I love heading out to restaurants in town with my girlfriends, sometimes I want to have a chill girl’s night at home. The apartment building I moved into is incredible, and there are so many spaces to entertain here. Plus, we have a gorgeous pool, so a lot of people love to come over to my place for all of the incredible amenities my building has!

The only downside about wanting to entertain but traveling a lot? Often, I don’t have a ton of groceries on hand in between travels. Here’s how I can put together a girl’s night in a few hours with the help of my Walmart+ membership!

Ordering Groceries for Girls Night with Walmart+

You guys know that I’ve been using my Walmart+ membership for a little over a year now, and it’s been such a lifesaver! 

One benefit of Walmart+ that I love? They offer free delivery straight from my store, which comes in handy for last-minute entertaining ($35 minimum. Restrictions apply). Because let’s face it: going to the grocery store can take up a ton of time, and time is money!  

With Walmart+, you can get groceries and more delivered as soon as same-day, at the low prices you love. For this girl’s night, I decided to do a Mediterranean Mezze Platter, and I loved that I could get fresh produce and great entertaining snacks through Walmart to create this! I was able to order all of these groceries and get them delivered to my home in a matter of hours.

How to Create the Perfect Mediterranean Mezze Platter

As much as I love a good cheese board, sometimes it’s good to switch things up! I was inspired to create a mezze platter for this girl’s night for my guests to enjoy. It’s effortless to put together, and it’s a bright, colorful board that’s sure to impress any company you might have over.

Here are some of the Walmart products I ordered to create this board:

Since this board is more savory, I added some grapes and cherry tomatoes to satisfy my guests’ sweet tooth. I love how colorful this board is, and it’s a super satisfying yet healthy snack to enjoy for girl’s night.
