Today: What is this? A Greek salad for ants?!

[tweetmeme source=”elizabethev” only_single=false] 10 pts. for all the Zoolander fans out there.

There are Greek babies.

And then, there are baby Greeks.

Both are adorable, but only the latter is edible.  I was looking for a fun, bite-sized appetizer to bring to my parents’ house for Thanksgiving and came up with these little guys.

They were a hit, but I thought they could use a bit more crunch, so for our team’s viewing of The Spirit of the Marathon at our place several weeks ago, I spruced them up a bit with a leaf or two of baby spinach.

Topping for 12 cucumber cups, hollowed with a melon baller or teeny, little spoon: 1 or 2 leaves of baby spinach or other greens, 1 red bell pepper (finely chopped), 1/2 red onion (finely chopped), 1/4 cup carrots (surprise… finely chopped), 2 tsp. Greek dressing, freshly ground pepper and sea salt.

Vegetables taste all the better when bite-sized, and topped with feta.  Not only can I whip up a mean appetizer, but I can also rhyme.  Please, hold your applause.  I embarrass easily.

Also On Tap for Today:

  • Blizzzzzzzzzzzard! (Not the Dairy Queen kind, the Mother Nature kind!)
  • Unwinding after a very merry Christmas 🙂

What’s your favorite easy appetizer?  And if you had to have a walk-off, would you want to battle Hansel or Derek Zoolander?
