Greek Salad on a Stick Recipe

This salad may be small, but it’s big on taste. Our twist on the nutrient-dense Greek salad was putting all the delicious ingredients on a skewer and serving them up like lettuce wraps. Tomatoes, cucumbers and red onions super charge this Mediterranean meal with lots of vitamin A and C. Meanwhile, olives provide a healthy source of unsaturated fat and feta brings the bold flavor. Add chicken breast or salmon for a heartier entrée. Try these salads-on-a-stick for a light yet deliciously filling bite that’s ready in just 15 minutes.
