this is a recipe you can pick and choose your adventure on!  the chimmi is great with just some bread.  its great just with some feta.  the marinated shrimp can be served without the cheese if you’d like – whatever you are in the mood for!  the kumquats are a great addition but if you do not have time to make them, some segments of blood orange or grapefruit would be tasty too!  just a nice refreshing acidic addition.
