I’m always looking for easy appetizers to throw together for an impromptu gathering. Inspired by these scrumptious caprese skewers, I decided it was time to test out a Greek salad skewer.
All it takes is a bit of chopping of ingredients, and in about 20 minutes, I had a plate full of these delectable bites. The key is to make sure you have the right portion of each component – you don’t want to overdo it with the briny Feta and olives.
A quick drizzle of olive oil and voilà, the easiest, freshest, and most flavorful app ever.
1/4 English cucumber
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 pound feta cheese, cut into 16 small cubes
8 pitted kalamata olives, halved
8 grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Cut four 1/2-inch-thick diagonal slices from the cucumber, and then quarter each slice. Season with 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Top each with a piece of feta and then an olive half.
Stab a toothpick through a tomato half, then thread through one of the cucumber stacks, pushing the toothpick down to secure it.
Arrange on a platter, drizzle with the olive oil, sprinkle with some more black pepper, and serve.
