    Manami's Note:

    This fun assortment of flavorful nibbles is ideal for summer entertaining. End the meal with frozen yogurt or a fruit salad of halved fresh cherries and pieces of watermelon.

      This was just so Yummy !!!! Made it for a nice light delicious lunch..we enjoyed it very much. I did cut the recipe down in half since we were only 2. I made the hummus the night before and the tomato mixture in the early morning and cut the cucumbers in the morning. Then just brought everything to work for lunch. Arranged the cucumber part at work along with assembling the platter. I had poured a little virgin olive oil over the hummus before serving. Also I had cooked the shrimps in chicken broth for a little flavor. The flavors of this platter was absolutely delicious. Thanks so much for sharing Manami...
