Greek Salad Skewer Appetizers

These Greek salad skewers are a simple and elegant appetizer for a family gathering or cocktail party. The ingredients can be sliced and refrigerated the day before, and the skewers can be assembled about an hour in advance.

These Greek Salad Skewers are so easy to make (and will make your anti-carb friends happy).

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

You could also add thin slices of red onion and a splash of red wine vinegar or lemon juice to these skewers if you'd like... or how about small slices of green bell pepper and bits of Romaine lettuce?

We are heading into appetizer season... the holidays, bowl games, cocktail parties, all great opportunities to try these Greek salad skewers.

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