Savoring the last few weeks of summer, I decided to bring the Mediterranean to Canada on a stick. Here we have a Greek-Style salad on a bamboo stick with a refreshing vinaigrette. Serve as an appetizer to highlight your main courses. This fancy presentation will have your diners in suspense as they await what comes next.
You may omit any of the suggested ingredients that make up the combination that I have presented and/or add your favorites and mix up the order of the presentation. Surely if you want to keep things simple, you don't have to include stuffed peppers with goat cheese, nor slow-roasted cherry tomatoes, but this gourmet sensation is worth a bit of extra effort. Slow roasting the cherry tomatoes adds an extra natural sweetness to this salad and any leftovers are perfect for snacking on and will add a special flourish to many dishes gracing your table.
The stuffed peppers might be the star of the show here or maybe the slow roasted tomatoes will receive the highest praise, but everything on this skewer comes together so well and compliments the other ingredients. The basil adds a cleansing touch to the palate making this a perfect light and refreshing appetizer. Vegetarians can make skewers as well as their meat loving friends.
