Goat Cheese Stuffed Black Olive Mediterranean Kabobs


  • 1 (6 ounce) can California Black Ripe Olives
  • 3 ounces goat cheese, softened (herbed or regular)
  • 1 large cucumber, cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 1/2 red onion, cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed basil leaves

Ingredients for the Mediterranean Vinaigrette

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt, to taste
  • 15-20 4 inch skewers


  1. Place the softened goat cheese into a pastry bag fitted with a medium sized tip (about the same size as the olive opening). Gently fill each olive with goat cheese.
  2. Assemble the kabobs by alternating between olives and other vegetable pieces. Layer vegetables in whatever pattern you like.
  3. Make the vinaigrette by mixing all ingredients together in a small bowl. Drizzle vinaigrette over kabobs just before serving.
