This makes a show-stopping way to truly impress family and friends alike. They are simple (can be made the day before, covered and in the refrigerator until ready to serve).
- 1/2 English cucumber cut in 1/2 inch slices, peel on
- 1/2 red onion, cut in 3/4 inch squares
- 24 cherry tomatoes
- 1 container of Feta cheese, cut in 24 small triangles, 1/2 inch thick
- 24 pitted black olives
- 24 small skewers
Using thin bamboo skewers (buy in bags – they have a curly end) thread all onto skewers, making each one the same, keeping the cheese on the top and the cherry tomato the first on.
- 1/2 tsp. garlic, finely chopped
- 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
- pinch of sugar
- 2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
- 3 tbsp. olive oil
In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients together, whisking to incorporate. Cover and refrigerate until ready to show off, just a little.
Drizzle the dressing over the skewers and serve. Oh,by the way, serve with ice cold beer or, if wanting to stay Mediterranean, make a Sangria.
