A little different Souvlaki

My kids love to eat food on a stick, like “Souvlaki” or kebab. So, here is an idea, colorful, fun and nutritious, if you choose the right ingredients. Use whole-wheat or multi-grain bread, even better if it’s home-made, turkey fillets, high-quality cheese (e.g. Greek Graviera Cheese) and vegetables, like tomato, cucumber, carrots, baby spinach leaves or some other green leaf vegetable. Then use some fun cookie cutters and a bamboo skewer and let your kids help, if they are old enough! They will have a feast!

You can also use fruits to make another kind of “Souvlaki” – fruit salad! They are perfect for every party! Watermelons, Honey melons, Mangoes; those are great fruits to use with cookie cutters. Other fruits like oranges or pineapple have to be cubed or sliced. Berries and grapes can be used as they are. Stick them on a bamboo skewer or a lollipop stick and they are ready to eat.

As a bonus, you could melt some dark chocolate and drizzle it on the fruit pieces… Yummy!
