Bite-Sized Greek Salad

 I took these fun appetizers to a party a little bit ago.  I didn't have time to make the "dressing" that was supposed to be added right before serving, and they were good, but not as good as they could have been.  I made a few for myself later, but this time, I used chunks of marinated (in oil) feta and the flavor was so much better!  I loved them.  I can buy jars of marinated feta here; if you cannot get it, you can make your own with olive oil, herbs, and chunks of feta.

While using the plain feta, I had a hard time with the chunks breaking when I tried to skewer them.  The marinated ones didn't break as easily, for some reason.  I could not get tiny baby tomatoes when I made these, so I just halved larger grape tomatoes.  I also halved slices of English cucumber, because again, I could not find mini cukes here.  :)

1.  If tomatoes are too big, cut them in half.  Do the same with cuke slices.  Using toothpicks, skewer the ingredients in order desired.  I chose to to do: tomato, cucumber, olive, marinated cheese.  Serve.
