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 gotta 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.

I’ve already made these twice in the last week – some with mint and some without. I love it with the mint because it helps balance out the super salty feta and sugary sweet berry, but they’re just as good without the mint if you don’t have it.

It’s like summer on a skewer – get on this!

    Sure you can call it a recipe! These would be great for all the random summer parties that spring up every weekend–at least until the strawberries run out for the season. :)

    These look so sophisticated – like an appetizer served at a fancy restaurant! I have loads of feta cheese stashed in my fridge – gotta get some strawberries! I’ve also heard that the watermelon+feta combination is good…have you tried it?

      i have NOT tried watermelon and feta together, but I want to! i have to wait a few more months for watermelon here.

        I bet a splash of balsamic on feta and watermelon would be insane. Now I wish it was summer again.

    Now I can’t wait for our strawberries to be ready! I will have to get some feta from our friends – they make it with their own goats’ milk. Such a great idea, Brandi! Thanks….

    I love the photos. Will have to try this with the tofu “feta” I make and see if it works too. Yum!

    Omigosh these look delicious and so easy! They’d be perfect for when unexpected guests show up and you want to serve something quick and delicious! Plus when feta is involved, it has to be good!

    I also do a similar app with grape tomatoes, basil and mozzarella with a balsamic vinaigrette dip
