Greek Salad Skewers – Perfect Keto Appetizer

Pinterest Hidden Image

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 them 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.

What you need to make Greek Salad Skewers

You’re not going to need much to make these Greek salad skewers!

  • 1 small organic cucumber
  • 8oz block of feta cheese
  • 12 grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 12 large black olives pitted

The only equipment you’ll need is wooden skewers. You can find some here.

How to make Greek salad skewers

It doesn’t get any easier than this!!

  1. Cut the cucumber into 12 equally thick slices
  2. Dice feta cheese into 12 cubes
  3. Arrange cucumber slices on a serving platter and top each with a cube of Feta cheese
  4. Gently press the flat end of a wooden skewer through the cheese and cucumber until secure, then add a tomato, followed by a black olive to top each skewer

When to serve these Greek salad skewers

These delightful skewers can be served at holiday gatherings as an appetizer or taken on a picnic. If you simply have the munchies and want a quick and easy treat, you can whip these up for moments like that.

How to store Greek salad skewers

Because all these ingredients are fresh, you can easily store them in the fridge for up to one week. Place them in a glass container and seal tightly.

What’s so good about these skewers?

Honestly, the best part about these Greek salad skewers is that they are so easy to make and everyone will love them. They are also relatively affordable too, with the only ingredient that may cost a little more is the feta cheese.

Unfortunately, you probably shouldn’t substitute the feta cheese because then they won’t have that Greek feel to them. I mean, you can substitute it for others but then you’d have to call them something else!
