This is based on a bar snack Alison spotted while, well, sitting at the counter at a local wine bar watching the bartender turn out quick pizza-like snacks with lavash (a type of Armenian flatbread), a variety of toppings and a toaster oven. If you can’t find lavash, see Variations below for other options.
One of these flatbreads makes a nice appetizer for four or a light lunch or supper for two. It’s also a great centerpiece for a snacky spread with other spring veggies and dips.
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons Kalamata olives
3 dates, pitted
1 lavash bread (10 x 8 inches)
1/4 recipe Sautéed Radishes with Mint (about 1/2 cup)
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons fresh mint, torn
flake sea salt (like Maldon)
Adjust rack to top third of the oven. Preheat oven to 400°F.
Combine the first 5 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring until smooth. Slice the olives, and thinly slice the dates.
Place the lavash on a cookie sheet. Spread yogurt mixture over lavash, and top evenly with radishes. Sprinkle with olives and dates. Bake 8 minutes, or until crisp around the edges. Drizzle with honey, and sprinkle with mint and flake sea salt.
Can’t find lavash? No worries. Use this topping on flour tortillas, pita or naan bread, or even on a traditional pizza.
