Tapas on a Stick
Serves: Makes 2 dozen
  • 1 block (a generous 5 ounces) Manchego cheese, cut into 24 small bite-size squares
  • 1 stick (a generous 5 ounces) cured sausage such as chorizo or Italian, halved or quartered lengthwise (depending on circumference) and sliced thin
  • 24 large pitted Spanish green olives
  • 24 large pitted black olives, such as Kalamata
  1. Working one skewer at a time assemble in the following order: sausage, olive, cheese; repeat with another piece of sausage, a different colored olive, and second piece of cheese. Serve. (Can be covered and set aside at room temperature a couple of hours before serving.)
If your olives are packed in brine, drain them and then drizzle with a little olive oil before skewering.
