Greek Salad Skewers
Updated: Jul 11, 2022
When you're looking for a simple, fast, no cooking required, vegetarian, gluten free, keto-friendly, paleo-friendly, low carb, low fat (whew, I'm tired from saying all of that) appetizer, this is the one.
These are such beautiful little skewers that are the perfect light snack to have out at a party that will satisfy almost any dietary restriction your guests might have (or don't have). They check all the boxes and are so yummy.
The "recipe" below is simply just what you need to make each skewer. Quantities will be dependent on how many you want to make.
Enjoy these wonderfully easy appetizers any time of the year!

1 English (hot house) cucumber
1 pint of cherry or grape tomatoes
1 6-oz. package of block feta cheese
Pitted kalamata olives (quantity = 1 for each skewer)
Bamboo skewers or long toothpicks
Slice the cucumber in half lengthwise then cut half moons about 1/2" thick (no need to peel the cucumber)
Cut the feta into approximately 1/3" - 1/2" cubes
To assemble: Skewer the cucumber first, piercing through the rounded edge with the skin on it (see photo above), followed by an olive, a piece of feta, then finally the tomato
Place the assembled skewers on a platter then drizzle them with the desired amount of balsamic glaze.
Refrigerate until ready to serve. They can sit out at room temperature for 1-2 hours.
*Recipe Notes & Variations*
1 pint of cherry tomatoes will yield about 25 tomatoes, give or take.
1 6-oz. package of block feta cheese will make 20-24 cubes for the size indicated above. Be gentle and go slow when skewering the cheese. It crumbles easily so just be aware of that as you skewer.
I find the little green bamboo skewers are the best for this. They are thin and long enough. A regular toothpick will be too short to fit everything and a more traditional wooden skewer (like you might use for kabobs) is too wide. But use what you have. The bamboo skewers are usually available at most grocery stores.
