People often ask me what my favorite “kind of food” is. I think they’re expecting me to say “Mexican” or “Italian,” but I always emphatically answer “PARTY FOOD!”
For me, it is a whole category of food. I don’t just mean potato chips casually thrown in a plastic bowl, or hot dogs on the grill (although both of those things are good, too).
I mean special bites, presented in a lovely manner that make a party feel truly special.
Sometimes, I’m positive that I was a wedding caterer in another life.
I’ve found that often, the most popular bites at a party are the ones with the simplest flavors.
Those that take just a few in-season ingredients, combine them in the best way possible, and present them in a beautiful package.
There’s nothing complicated at all about making a feta salad shooter like this one.
At it’s core, it’s just layers of crunchy cucumber, creamy and tangy crumbled feta cheese, and fresh tomato tossed with a little vinaigrette and basil. That’s it. It’s a salad, but an artful salad.
Psst – if you love little bites of food presented in shooter glasses, you’ll want to check out my Valentine’s day dessert shooters!
