Greek Salad Bites

I was making grilled lamb gyros the other day and figured I’d better scout around for a Greek-inspired side dish. I didn’t want to do the ‘usual’ Greek salad, but I wanted something light. These little Greek salad bite appetizers worked just great as a side. Anita’s a big fan of sun-dried tomatoes and Kalamata olives, so she really liked these. The basil sprinkled on top really brings these little morsels together.

I think that the cucumbers made for a great vessel for these Greek salad bites. But really, you don’t have to use them. You can substitute your favorite cracker instead.

Also try my grilled zucchini roll-ups.
