Greek Salad Cups

Once again, my genius friend Kari comes up with a beautiful way to turn something simple into something fantastic.  Rather than the usual Greek salad in a big old bowl, she layers olives, avocado, cucumbers, roasted baby tomatoes, onion, and cucumber in small clear cups and puts a whole wheat pita spear in each one for garnish and crunch.  Drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with fresh herbs, this salad not only looks amazing but tastes delicious too.

Try it for your next event, or do something similar with fruit salad, antipasto salad, or even a few chunks of fresh pear with blue cheese and candied nuts.  Yum!

    This is such an awesome idea…. I love it! I’m wondering if you could do this in a hollowed out tomato or some other sort of edible cup…though the clear cups look REALLY pretty since you can see all the colors showing through!
