Feta Salad Shooters
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!
Feta Salad Shooters
I don’t like feta (please still be friends with meeeeee!) but I love the look and idea of these pretty layered salads. Party food IS the best! Wish I were munching on a big plate of little, delicious appies right now!
I GUESS we can still be friends. Actually, these shooters would work with blue cheese too (although if you don’t like feta, it seems unlikely you’d like blue). I think they’d also be really good with a layer of something briny/salty instead of the feta….like chopped olives or somethin’.
Love this- SUPER easy and cute and hands free way of eating Greek Salad!
Thanks Sophia! I never get tired of Greek salads, in any shape or form 🙂
I love this idea!
Thanks so much, Lauren!
Thanks so much, Kristen. I think that’s what I love about party food – little bites, lots of assortment. It’s the most interesting way to eat!
I’m totally with you on party food. LOVE it. There’s something about cute little bites of things and lots of assortment that makes me super happy. I do some catering on the side and these little salad shooters would be perfect for an event I have coming up!
