We are officially kicking off the summer this weekend friends! It’s Memorial Day weekend for us and it means some good ol’ fashion family and BBQ time. We are grilling up some classics because once in a while you just gotta have a juicy hamburger right off the grill and a hotdog with all the fixins. You know what I mean? And with juicy burgers, you gotta have some tasty (healthified) sides, like Greek Salad Skewers = 100% crowd pleaser!
It’s pretty much greek salad on a stick and who doesn’t love food on a stick? Tomatoes, olives, cucumbers, and feta all skewered and drizzled with a tasty greek vinaigrette. It’s the same vinaigrette I use pretty much on all of my greek salads, sides, and meats. It’s super tasty and easy to make and totally adds something a little extra to these simple skewers.
These make the best side dish or appetizer. They aren’t fancy or complicated at all. Only 4 ingredients with minimal prep. Fresh, flavorful, and pretty. Plus food on a stick? I just can’t get over it. Annnnd these require no utensils to be devoured. Always a plus, especially when feeding a crowd.
Hope y’all have a long weekend off (for those celebrating in US). Follow me on IG to see what we’re up to and cooking this weekend. Plus, please tag me on IG or FB @littlebrokenblog if you cook anything from my blog or just simply wanna show off your own food creations 🙂Print
