How To Make Salad On a Stick

Recipe Notes and Tips

It’s a good idea to have some make-ahead appetizers that are simple and easy to execute. And it’s also a great idea that a few of the recipes are going to be healthy appetizers.

Because Feta cheese is such a flavorful ingredient, you won’t need to add additional seasoning.

The first time I prepped Salad On A Stick the night before the event I was a bit nervous. Cucumbers can be quite watery. And I feared that I might wake up to a tray full of runny salad skewer mush.

Thankfully, that didn’t happen. This simple Greek Salad inspired skewer looked just perfect the next day. And it became an instant crowd pleaser.
