One Last Bite of Summer

by kathyjeanwelsh

I don’t know where you live, but here in Colorado it is the BEST time of year!  Brilliant sunshine, bright blue skies…

… a chill in the air….  Aaaahhhhh… HEAVEN!

Well, with all this perfect weather, we are still thinking about picnics and fairs and festivals… and what is the best food for such adventures?  Food on a stick, of course!

Friend and I came up with this tasty morsel while thinking of ideas for a salad contest on facebook – The Greek Salad Bite!  Cute, right?

Easy to prep and easy to assemble, this would be a great thing for the kids to make, too!

We used feta cheese, peppadew peppers, yellow and orange bell peppers, kalamata olives, tomato, red onion, pepperoncini, and these amazing lemon cucumbers…

Have you ever eaten a lemon cucumber?  Totally delicious!  We got a couple at the South Pearl Farmers’ Market, from these super sweet ladies who grew them!  Love to buy from the farmers!

Anyhoo, I just whipped up a quick dressing with olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic and italian seasoning, we drizzled it over the “salad” and that was it.  BAM!  We think it would be a really cute appetizer for a party, too.

Well, time for me to “stick” to my plans for the day and get a move on!  Happy Friday, people!  I’ll be back over the weekend with an amazing recipe for vegan “beef” made with walnuts and cauliflower!  You won’t believe it!

Until then…

Cheers, dears!
