Strawberry Basil Feta Skewers

by jerseygirl on July 9, 2017

In the summer, I love hanging out with a drink and a few appetizers. Entertaining doesn’t have to be fancy or complicated so I always keep some ingredients in my fridge to whip something up on short notice that goes well with a cocktail. As a matter of fact, these strawberry basil feta skewers are also perfect with sangria or a nice cold summer beer. They are lighter in calories compared to many appetizers and I would probably even describe them as healthy. What’s not to like about them?

I love summer berries and will admit to eating more than my share of strawberries lately. So when I checked my refrigerator for fruit and saw the container of strawberries sitting next to a package of feta cheese, a little light bub went off.  The basil in my garden has been taking over so I figured  it was time to pick some of the gigantic leaves and add them to this recipe.

While I used strawberries for these skewers, you could also use tomatoes and I think peaches would go well also. I like the strawberries because I have a love for anything sweet and salty. And the berries have been quite sweet this year.

Check out my video after the recipe below. You’ll realize how easy these bites are to make.

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer!
