This past weekend I was in charge of bringing an appetizer to my hubby's family reunion in a nearby town. I wanted to make something easy, elegant and portable.
One of my favourite websites, Cooking With My Kid, has a ton of yummy pre-dinner treats and I picked one involving these ingredients:
Yessirreee - Greek Salad on a Stick!
To make everything fit on a standard toothpick, I found I had to cut each item to a certain size.
1.) Grape tomatoes need to be cut in half.
2.) An English cucumber has to but cut into slices no thicker than 1/3" and then cut into half circles.
3.) Slice your feta cheese into rectangles 1/3" thick and approximately the same size as your cucumber slices.
4.) Start stacking!!
Cucumber + Feta
Cucumber + Feta+ Grape Tomato
Cucumber + Feta + Grape Tomato + Whole Black Olive
Now wasn't that easy?
I think the rather large tray I made for the party lasted approximately 5 minutes!! In fact- they never even made it outside - they were consumed quickly in the kitchen!!
My original plan was to drizzle some Greek dressing over the tray before they were served. However, the guests at the party found it just as easy to dip the sticks in the bowl of dressing left near the serving tray!!
I am definitely going to make these again!
