A super quick and healthy Greek-inspired finger food party appetizer with cucumber, tomato, olives, and feta.
I love a summer get-together. A backyard party for any occasion, or even no occasion at all, with family, friends, and good food just can’t be beat. Throw in some Sangria (be sure to check out my super awesome recipe for Sangria here), and I’m a happy camper. Know what else makes me a happy camper? When I can prepare a dish for one of these parties that requires no cooking. None. Zero cooking.
Who doesn’t love a quick and easy no-cook party appetizer? There’s always a million thing to do when hosting a party, so any time I can save time or do less cooking, I’m all in.

Greek Salad Appetizer Skewers
This super easy appetizer is perfect for any summer gathering…actually, there’s no reason why it can’t be served in the fall, winter, or spring, too. I guess it’s just nice not to have to cook when it’s hot out.
Since this appetizer is gluten-free, it’s appealing to a diverse crowd. You can easily adapt the amounts to make this dish for a much larger crowd. When planning out how many to prepare, I generally plan on 3 Greek Salad Sticks per person.
Be sure to use 8-inch bamboo skewers to make these kabobs. A 10 or 12-inch skewer would be too large. Also, try not to use skewers that are pointy at both ends. You could use them that way, of course, but then the sticks wouldn’t be able to stand on their own, you would have to lay them flat.
They really do make a nice, colorful presentation. When given a choice of a bunch of appetizers, I’m telling you, people always gravitate to these first!
1 cucumber, cut in 12 equal slices
8 oz feta cheese, cut in 12 equal squares
12 cherry tomatoes
12 large black olives, pitted
olive oil, to drizzle
½ tsp dried dill seasoning
salt & pepper
Arrange your cucumber slices on a serving platter and top each with a chunk of feta cheese. Gently press the flat end of a wooden skewer through the cheese and cucumber until secure, then add the tomato, followed by a black olive on top.
Repeat with each skewer.
Right before serving, drizzle extra virgin olive oil over the Greek skewers and season with dried dill and salt and pepper, to taste.
