Recipe: Greek Salad Skewers


  • 1 large cucumber, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 red onion, cut into chunks
  • 1 bell pepper (colour of choice), cut into chunks
  • 200g feta cheese, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup Kalamata olives, pitted
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish
  • Wooden skewers


  1. Begin by preparing your vegetables. Wash the cucumber, cherry tomatoes, bell pepper, and red onion. Cut them along with the feta cheese into uniform, bite-sized pieces that will easily fit onto your skewers.
  2. Whisk together the extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, dried oregano, salt, and pepper in a small bowl to create a simple Greek dressing.
  3. Start assembling the skewers. Alternate pieces of cucumber, cherry tomatoes, red onion, bell pepper, feta cheese, and Kalamata olives onto the skewers. Aim for a mix of colours and textures on each skewer.
  4. Arrange the skewers on a serving platter. Once all the skewers are assembled, drizzle them with the Greek dressing, ensuring each skewer gets an even coating.
  5. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve immediately. If desired, provide extra dressing on the side for dipping.

How to Prepare:

Use fresh ingredients for your skewers to ensure the best flavour and presentation. Cut the vegetables and cheese into similar-sized pieces for a uniform look. When skewering, please leave a little space at the base to make them easier to pick up and eat. Drizzle the dressing just before serving to keep the vegetables crisp.
