Greek Salad Skewers

This super easy appetizer tastes just like a Greek salad on a stick. 

Greek Salad Skewers

Here in Minnesota, we’re known for our unique love of foods on a stick. If you’ve ever been to our state fair, you know what I’m talking about. Come hungry because you can feast on deep fried walleye on a stick, macaroni and cheese on a stick, even a deep fried candy bar on a stick. I’m down with the walleye, but some of the other options are just too out there for me. But not these Greek Salad Skewers. While you won’t find these at the Great Minnesota Get Together, they ARE made on a (tiny) stick and taste just like Greek salad in a bite-sized appetizer form. 

I love these because a) they are obviously super easy to make, but b) they also travel well and can hang out at an afternoon barbecue without sacrificing taste. As summer produce starts rolling in, these will be especially tasty bites with fresh-from-the-garden tomatoes and cucumbers. 

Super refreshing, especially when enjoyed with a glass of chilled white wine. (Just sayin’.)

  7. I feel like food on a stick or miniature food always tastes better for some reason! So cute!

  8. Why is it food tastes better on a stick? I’m sort of a sucker for Greek food, I could probably eat a whole tray of these!

  9. I had no idea that people from Minnesota liked food on a stick. How am I going to insert that piece of knowledge into a conversation? Ha! I do like the mini bites you made. Easy to eat. Easy to fix. And dang cute.
