Feta & Cucumber Nip

Crunchy pita chips make the perfect base for this ultra-quick olive, cucumber and feta appetizer. If you can’t find baby cucumber, cut a regular cucumber into thin slices that are approximately the same size as your pita chips.

Yield: 2 dozen
Active Time: 15
Total Time: 15


  • 1/4 cup prepared olive tapenade
  • 24 pita chips or thin slices baguette, toasted
  • 48 very thin slices baby cucumber
  • 3 ounces feta cheese, cut into 48 cubes (1/2-inch)
  • 3 thinly sliced lemon rounds, cut into eighths, plus 2 lemon wedges
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil


Spread 1/2 teaspoon olive tapenade on each pita chip (or baguette slice). Top with 2 cucumber slices, 2 feta cubes and a lemon sliver. Just before serving, drizzle with oil and a squeeze of lemon.
