These Greek Salad Skewers are a delicious twist on your favorite salad. In less than 10 minutes, you'll have an appetizer that's light yet substantial enough for a whole crowd!
Summer salads are one of my favorite dishes for the warmer months. Lighter meals that require little prep and no cooking are a huge win in our house.
But they aren't always conducive to entertaining.
When our family visits, we love hanging out on our deck and in our backyard. Stand-up meals are not unheard of since we're all busy playing, chatting and chasing kids to sit down for a meal. There's been many times where our meal consisted of snacks or appetizers alone.
Luckily, I found a delicious way to enjoy one of my favorite salads by changing it's form a bit:
Greek Salad Skewers.
These Greek Salad Skewers are the perfect appetizer for warmer weather. With little prep (about 10 minutes) and no cook time, it's already a win. But the taste is delicious and the mess is minimal, too!
I would recommend these wooden skewers for this recipe in the 8″ size. You can get smaller or larger if wanted (and these come in a variety of sizes.) You'll get a ton so you can make these Greek Salad Skewers all summer long!
Greek Salad Skewers Recipe
- 1 Cucumber Sliced into 12 slices
- 8 oz Feta Cheese Block Cut into 12 chunks
- 12 Grape Tomatoes
- 12 Black or Kalamata Olives Pitted
- 1/2 Tsp Italian Seasoning
- Salt and Pepper To taste
- Olive Oil For drizzling
Arrange all of the cucumber slices on a serving platter.
Layer each slice with a chunk of the Feta cheese. Press the flat end of the wooden skewer through the cheese and cucumber.
Add a tomato and then a black olive. Repeat for the rest of the cucumber slices.
Before serving, drizzle on the olive oil and sprinkle on the salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.
Some delicious additions to these simple Greek Salad Skewers include:
- Red onion
- Bell pepper
You can add some extra color to your Greek Salad Skewers by using multi colored grape tomatoes.
We tend to have pretty small crowds to feed so this is a small batch that's good for about 4-6 people. But you can easily scale up to feed a larger crowd!
