Hi girls! I'm in the process of making a template for our reception menus ... I would like to use the spanish terms for the following:

 

Appetizers ------- the internet said "appertivo" ---

so would it be Los Appertivos? or just Appertivos?

or just use the singular?

 

Salad --------- Insalata? There is only one salad being served ...

 

Main Course ------- The only thing I could find on the internet suggest using

"Mensa Principalis" ---- Is this correct?

 

Dessert --------- The internet says "postre" --- would this be "Los Postres"

since we're having both wedding and groom's cake?

 

 

Thanks for the help! Apparently my 2 years of Spanish in college did nothing for me!!! :)

Here's what I would say....which may be wrong since I'm not fluent, but we have several fluent speakers here who can give you the real scoop :o)

 

appetizers = antojitos

 

salad = ensalada

 

main course = el plato principal or el plato segundo

 

postre is dessert....I think it should be plural but I'm not certain

Jamy is correct :)

Main course is also referred to as 'plato fuerte' it translates as 'strong plate'.

I would not add 'los' infront of 'postre'. It simply means dessert.

I'd much rather be able to order food in a foreign language than discuss world politics (sad, but true!) :)
