When I’m not in the mood to cook and just want to serve an easy-to-assemble appetizer that still looks beautiful, I make Tangy Cucumber Feta Bites. They are crunchy, cool, and creamy with just the right tangy bite to them. Every time I’ve made them, they have been a crowd-pleasing hit! The original recipe comes from one of my favorite lifestyle blogs, The Simply Luxurious Life by Shannon Ables. Her blog is full of inspiration for women, along with fashion advice and recipes all wrapped up with a Francophile flourish.
I love how these little bites are fool-proof to make. What I love even more about them is how I can make them hours in advance and store them in the fridge until I need them. This frees up my time before a party begins to attend to other details that truly do need to wait until the last minute.
I most recently made a batch of Tangy Cucumber Feta Bites this week when I had some friends over for a girls’ night in. Everyone brought an appetizer or dessert to share. It was the perfect girly dinner of snacky appetizers, creamy new cheeses to try, and little bites of rich desserts. With less than two weeks to go before my baby’s due date, I’m trying to enjoy this time with friends before I will have to hibernate with the newborn for awhile. Throwing a little appetizer party with the girls was perfect for this time in my pregnancy, so I wouldn’t overexert myself and could just focus on making a couple of easy items. Tangy Cucumber Feta Bites always wins in my book for an impressive-looking but easy appetizer!
