Wedding Menu

Having spent countless hours pouring over pictures of bright and colourful foods, my wedding’s officiant (oh, and bestie) made a significant amount of progress on the weddings menu yesterday. After a little sleep, I’ve hammered out the final product.

We’re having the wedding in a public park, with just over 30 guests. It’s relatively casual event, with a picnic motif. My dress is a mint green and the wedding party (Maid of Honour and Best Man) will be wearing bow ties. For the only part that really gets me excited – THE FOOD – I want to set up a salad and sandwich bar for our guests to assemble their own food, so bright colours and contrasting flavours and textures are really important. The plan is to have two long plastic containers filled with ice and the components of each bar sitting in their own containers on top of that ice.

Prepared Salads
coleslaw with creamy cilantro dressing
quinoa salad with edamame
roasted new potato salad with fresh sage, rosemary and roasted garlic
For Sandwiches
brown bread, white bread, pita bread
marinated mushrooms, falafel patties and marinated tofu
roasted fennel, sweet potato, eggplant, onion, zucchini
salad ingredients
For Salad
assorted baby lettuces, spinach
cherry heirloom tomatoes, carrots, cucumber, bell pepper, red onion, celery, green beans, daikon, shredded beets, feta (maybe if it’s not awful but I can’t trust the reviews on the Happy Herbivore’s site because people always kiss her ass)
pickles, olives, capers, raisins, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, hot peppers, pickled turnips
fresh flat leaf parsley, basil, dill, cilantro, mint, chives
Spreads and Dressings
beet tahini, spicy lemon aioli and tahini peanut sauce
oil olive, lemon and herb vinaigrette, roasted red pepper balsamic vinaigrette and poppy seed dressing
roasted corn on the cob half plain, half in a cilantro lime chili butter
thai salad rolls with mango, smoked tofu and basil
rosemary lemonade, strawberry basil iced tea, iced mochas, water
wedding cupcakes – green tea with raspberry buttercream
butter tart squares (Hello! We’re Canadian!)
