More About This Recipe
  • Want to get the kids to eat salad? Serve it the fun way -- on a stick!

    When we’re picnicking or having a backyard party, sometimes it’s nice to forget the utensils in favor of hand-held foods. There’s less mess, less cleanup and less to remember. But I always like to have something salad-ish with our meals.

    So, can you have salad sans forks? YES! This Simple Salad on a Stick is a fabulous way to enjoy the flavors of salad without the hassle of plates, forks, etc … perfect for parties or picnics or whenever.

    My kids particularly like when I make them for ”whenever.” Something about eating food off a stick makes the kids unspeakably happy. I can’t blame them. I have to agree on that note.

    Simple Salad on a Stick is as easy as can be to toss together. Or you can use the directions to make whatever combination you want – peppers, onions, other cheeses, even fruit.

    And to serve, a little cup of dressing is good for dipping. Or forgo it (we usually do) and just enjoy biting the bits of fresh veggies and cheese right off the stick.
