Greek Feta Yogurt Snack Bites
Greek feta yogurt snack bites are cool, crisp and a little zesty and can be made in less than 15 minutes.
- 1 cup yogurt
plain (I used a natural greek yogurt- you want it to be thick)
- ½ cup feta cheese
- 1 tablespoon garlic chives
chopped (can use regular chives)
- 1 teaspoon mint leaves
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- ⅛ teaspoon thyme
- ⅛ teaspoon marjoram
- ⅛ teaspoon oregano
- salt and pepper
- 1 cucumber
English seedless cucumbers (or variety of choice)
- 5 baby bell peppers red (you can also use sweet Italian long peppers. I actually used a Chinese variety that is not as hot as a chili pepper but not as sweet and mild as a bell pepper)
- 5 slices bacon (chopped and sautéed until golden brown)- optional garnish
Prepare the Greek Feta Yogurt dip: In a medium bowl combine greek natural yogurt, feta cheese, garlic chives, mint leaves, garlic powder, lemon juice, thyme, marjoram, oregano, salt and pepper and mix well. Set aside in refrigerator. This step can be done up to 48 hours in advance.
Wash and slice cucumbers into ¼ inch thick rounds. Wash and cut baby red sweet bell peppers into ¼ thick rounds. Fry the bacon and set aside (optional). This step can be done up to 24 hours in advance.
Assembly: Place the cucumbers flat on serving platter, set up the sweet baby red bell peppers on top of the cucumbers. Fill the inside of the baby red bell peppers with a dollop of Greek Feta Yogurt dip. Garnish with bacon if desired.
