Spreads are one of the defining dishes of the Mediterranean and Middle East. With olive oil as their common binder, they are prepared in all manner of textures, colors, flavors and aromas -- important qualities for the traditional meze table, which is meant to appeal to all the senses. Since they can be served room-temperature, they are easily portable and make low-fat, nutrient- and vitamin-packed lunches. Spreads are delicious accompanied by pita or vegetables or even spooned straight from the package. They also make tasty condiments for gyros and sandwiches and handy pasta, grain and potato toppings.
