Greek Salad Bites

If you couldn't already tell, I'm a huge fan of "bites". It has a lot to do with the boating lifestyle. Not every boat has a stove or a fridge, so I like to show up to a boat party with something that is ready-to-eat. Caprese Bites were my appetizer of choice for 2010, but I've been searching for something new. So this year, we have Greek Salad Bites.


1 English Cucumber
1 block of feta cheese
Cherry Tomatoes
Kalamata Olives, pitted
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Greek Cucumber Dill Yogurt Dip (optional, for dipping)

*You'll also need toothpicks


Cut the cucumber into 1/2-inch slices and then quarter each slice. Cut the block of feta cheese into tiny cubes, about 1/4-inch squares. Cut the olives in half lengthwise. Cut the tomatoes into halves. Place one cube of cheese on top of each cucumber piece, then top with a piece of olive and a piece of tomato. Skewer down the center of the stack with a toothpick. Repeat until you have your desired number of "bites". Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and Enjoy!
