Olive, Cucumber, and Feta Salad
Having a party? Your guests will love the idea of choosing whether they want their salad tossed or on a skewer. Here is one salad served two ways. You can either have it tossed or enjoy the same ingredients beautifully combined and skewered.
1 Fresh Cucumber
1 cup of black olives
13-14 feta cheese squares
3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp minced garlic
Slice cucumber, drain olives, and cut feta cheese into squares. Assemble the salad on skewers by starting with the black olive, followed by two to three slices of cucumber and finished off with a square of feta cheese. If serving as both a tossed salad and skewers, arrange the skewers around a large flat plate. Once you have created the outer circle in skewers, fill the inner circle with the individual ingredients. Start off with a bed of lettuce, add cucumbers, followed by slices of black olives and finish off with crumbled feta cheese. You can either sprinkle the salad dressing on top of the mixed salad or you can toss the entire salad in another bowl and place the tossed salad inside the inner circle.
To make dressing, mix the balsamic vinegar, garlic, and olive oil together until combined.
If you are only serving the skewered salad. Start off with pouring a small amount of dressing on the plate or your serving platter. Place the skewered salad on top of the dressing and let sit for a few moments. You want the feta cheese to absorb some of the dressing. Then sprinkle the dressing on top of the skewers and serve immediately.
