One of my favorite easy-to-make appetizers are skewers! They’re visually appealing, are super quick and easy to make and the variations on flavors are never-ending.
This weekend my neighborhood wine group had a small summer kick-off cookout on Saturday. It had been a busy week so I was looking for something quick and easy to take. I came up with these Greek inspired feta, cucumber and Kalamata olive skewers with Greek dressing for dipping on the side. Assembly for a couple dozen pieces took 5 minutes or less. People commented that they looked fancy/festive yet they were so easy!
- Cut a brick of feta in half so that each bite will be about 1/4 inch thick (I used Mt. Vikos, 7 ounce size), then cut the two rectangles in to thirds by length and quarters by width (resulting in 24 small squares).
- Cut 6 cucumber slices again, each about 1/4 inch thickness and the quarter each round.
- Buy 24 pre-pitted Kalamata olives and stack away!
I used Stonewall Farms Greek dressing for the dip.
Other Great Combinations:
- cherry tomato, mozzarella, basil
- cooked cheese tortellini, salami, sun-dried tomato
- artichoke quarter, Parmesan cheese slice, roasted red pepper
- cooked sausage or kielbasa, cooked sweet potato cubes
- cantaloupe, prosciutto, shrimp
- watermelon, mint, feta, blackberry
- grape, banana, kiwi (great as a dessert, drizzled with chocolate)
- cubes of pound cake, strawberries
