Greek Appetizer Skewers

One week 'til Christmas!  I am watching/listening to A Very Murray Christmas on Netflix as I blog and if you haven't seen it yet and you enjoy a star-studded cast singing Christmas carols, you should, too.  I have been so excited for the holidays this year complete with apple cider candles, strings of lights and presents wrapped and ready to go.  The only downside to getting your shopping done early is that you have to wait SO LONG before you can actually give the gifts!
For your holiday parties this season, I have another appetizer that requires no cooking and no prep work.  Just shop and assemble!  These little one-biters are so delicious and customizable that everyone is sure the love them.   The possibilities are endless!  Besides tomatoes, olives and mozzarella balls, you could add cucumber, prosciutto or artichoke hearts and garnish with basil leaves.  These went like hot cakes at my most recent gathering and I think when I make them again  I will bring two varieties. Add these to your menu and your holiday party is sure to be a hit!
