    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!) :)

            Thanks girls!
