Greek Salad Skewers | #AppetizerWeek

Welcome to Day #5 of Appetizer Week, a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Kristen from Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker. Whether you are a Broncos fan or a Seahawks fan, we wanted to make sure you had plenty of ideas for your game day spread. Each day we will be dishing up a different set of appetizers. We hope you enjoy this fabulous group of recipes. Tune in each day starting with Monday, January 20 and ending on Saturday, January 25.

Greek Salad Skewers

These Greek Salad Skewers are so easy to make and so tasty (and will make your low carb friends happy). The ingredients can be sliced and refrigerated a day in advance, and the skewers can be assembled about an hour in advance.

These are tasty. I put a few of these together to take this photo for this post, and Mr. Kitchen wanted to know where they were once I was done. I had to confess that that I'd eaten them all. Sheepish grin.

  1. This is neat idea. I have made caprese salad skewers, but I never thought to try making other little salad bites.
