Strawberry Feta Skewers


Can you call a recipe a "recipe" if you don't actually cook anything? Maybe this should just be called "good snack instructions" instead.

Wash fruit. Slice feta. Grab mint. Stack. Devour.

When a snack starts like this, you know it's going to be a good thing.

I've had strawberries and feta together before -- on salads and weird-but-tasty pizzas, but never on their own like this. But when you've got cups and cups of strawberries ripening every day ... you have to eat while the eatin' is good. And that means coming up with some new ways to use them when you don't have time to freeze them or make jam.

These are summer on a skewer -- get on it!

Strawberry Feta Skewers

Makes: 20 bites/skewers
20 small to medium strawberries
1/2 pound feta
20 mint leaves

Slice the tops off the strawberries. Cut the feta into cubes.
Take a toothpick and skewer the strawberry, mint leaf, and feta. Repeat until all the skewers are made.
