I love Greek salad and thought this was a perfect way to fancy it up and serve it as a snack at picnics or an appetizer at holiday feasts. These Greek Salad Skewers are naturally ketogenic, making it a great choice to serve at mixed-diet gatherings.
This quick and easy no-cook naturally keto appetizer recipe is perfect for warmer weather, but it is substantial enough to enjoy year-round. As written, this recipe serves as a light appetizer for 4 to 6 people. However, it can easily be scaled for more substantial portions and/or larger gatherings, as well.
To this recipe I would add bacon as well, bacon is immaculate and takes any dish up a notch, wouldn’t you agree? You could add prosciutto to stick with the fancier theme.
