SUMMER OUTINGS - This recipe is perfect for all kinds of summer activities. And if you love to spend your summer outdoors, our salad skewers, along with these snacks for boating and picnics, are perfect for you.
EASY - Salad-On-A-Stick is an easy recipe that's perfect if you're looking for a last-minute recipe you can put together in 20 minutes or less. It's also a great recipe to involve your kids in.
VEGETARIAN - While meat-based appetizers such as our easy Salami Rolls make terrific snacks, I always like to offer at least one tasty vegetarian option.
HEALTHY - And did I mention that each little salad skewer has only 11 calories?
MAKE AHEAD - The best appetizers are the ones you can make ahead of time.
CUCUMBERS - I prefer English cucumbers (also known as hothouse cucumbers) for this recipe.
TOMATOES - You'll want to use grape or cherry tomatoes for this recipe.
FETA CHEESE - Good feta cheese makes our taste buds sing. I prefer to buy feta cheese in brine because you'll get a lovely salty boost.
How To Make Salad On a Stick
- CHEESE - Cut the block of feta cheese into bite-sized squares.
- VEGGIES - Slice the cucumber twice lengthwise so you'll have little triangles. Next, cut the cherry tomatoes in half.
- ASSEMBLY - Use a small skewer and assemble.
Recipe Success Tips
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 pretty watery. And I feared that I might wake up to a tray full of runny salad skewer mush.
Thankfully, that didn't happen. Instead, this simple Greek Salad inspired skewer looked perfect the next day. And it became an instant crowd pleaser.
