Mini Greek Salad Bites + 18 Other Ideas for Super Bowl Appetizers

Jan 27, 2016

I love appetizers.  Like really love them, I could easily be content with that being my meal.  I have a fun new (and easy) app to share with you today plus a round of of some of my other favorite apps that would be perfect for Super Bowl Sunday next week- GO PANTHERS!

You may notice many are dips and many contain bacon.  It just so happens dips and bacon are two of my favorite things.  If you click on the recipe name it will take you back to the original recipe post.  for some of the other easy recipes I just listed the ingredients below the pictures.  Going back through all my appetizer recipes made me realize how many of these I need to make again.  They are all so darn good.

I love Greek Salad and I eat it several times a week, so I tried to rack my brain and think of an appetizer I could make that had similar flavors.   Behold the Mini Greek Salad Bites.  They are easy to assemble, require no baking, and are super tasty. The mini phyllo cups can be found in the freezer section.  The creamy hummus and tangy tzatziki paired with the crunchy chopped Greek salad topping make for an amazing flavor combination.  


G R E E K  S A L A D  B I T E S

– handful diced cherry tomatoes

– 1 baby cucumber diced

– 2 green onions sliced

– 1/2 orange bell pepper diced

2 oz Feta crumbled (I like to buy the block kind and chop it, it tastes better)

– red wine vinegar

– plain hummus


– Mini Phyllo cups

Remove Phyllo cups from freezer and let thaw.  This doesn’t take too long maybe 10-15 minutes. 

In a bowl combine cherry tomatoes and next 4 ingredients.  Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with red wine vinegar.  

Take a phyllo cup and place a spoonful of hummus on the bottom, then a spoonful of tzatziki and then a spoonful of the Greek salad mix.  I found using a kid sized spoon made this easy since the cups are tiny.  Assemble on platter and enjoy!
