Ham and Cheese Skewers

Another option is to order the whole cheese to chop the squares and the sliced ham. The fish markets are divided into three and joined into one. Now, click the three slices of ham, click a cheese, then the slices of ham and then the cheese and so on until about 3 cheeses are placed.

You can also consider, based on the previous idea, chop the ham in 4. Then click the 4 strips of ham, click a square of cheese and with the ham cover the cheese on all four sides and click to keep them. Repeat until you have lined about 3 cheeses.

Skewers of olives, prawn and cherry tomato

With these colors you would be giving a Christmas touch to the presentation. You will need cherry tomato, a little shrimp and green olives. Although you can use a common toothpick, it is currently fashionable to use bamboo toothpicks.

Cucumber and salmon skewers

Another very good option is to add some salmon, cream cheese and cucumber. Start by cleaning the cucumber, cut it into slices and then into triangles.

Now take the salmon and one on that sheet the cream cheese. And cutting strips of at least 1 centimeter.

Then, remove the skin from the potatoes and chop them into 6 parts. Then place a piece of potato on a toothpick and fold a slice of ham and close with another piece of potato. And ready! Repeat until all the ingredients are located.

Side dishes for the skewers

At the time of serving the skewers, depending on the elements that you have used, you may require a little sauce to pass the chosen combination. That is why in some cases it is recommended to put a little cream cheese.

You can use a yogurt-based garlic cream, or you can choose to make a dill sauce like the one we are going to show you next.

Considerations when preparing the skewers

  • You can prepare the skewers well in advance so that they are all ready, most of them are usually eaten cold, so there are no problems if you keep them in the fridge.

  • Bear in mind that many foods react to cold in the fridge and cause them to change color, so be sure to cover them with plastic wrap.

  • Do not forget in the cases of adding vegetables, even if you place them raw add a little salt and pepper so that by themselves they have a great flavor.

As you will see, these preparations will not take you long. Once the ingredients are chopped, the assembly is done in a matter of seconds and after a few minutes you will have several trays to present and share.

These inexpensive and easy-to-make recipes can be helped by the little ones in the house, since it is quite fun and fast to put together each skewer.
