80--- Salad on a Stick

My husband and I threw our annual Summer Solstice party this weekend. On the menu? Grilled pizzas! Our guests were asked to bring a pizza topping and we supplied the pre-baked, personal-size Wheat & Honey Crusts. As a dietitian, I felt the need to also include some extra vegetables as a side dish. And I wanted to do it without guests needing to use utensils.

Salad on a stick to the rescue! On some skewers I stacked chunks of iceberg lettuce, a cucumber slice, and a cherry tomato. Spinach, red onion, and strawberries adorned others. I served them with my Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing and Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette from my Harvest Salad. Some people dressed their skewer and ate it right off of the stick. Others removed the salad from the skewer onto their plate and ate it with the stick. Either way works!


  1. That is an awesome idea. I love it and plan to use this at our next BBQ. Genius!

  2. what a super idea! I love the spinach and strawberries! especially with the maple balsamic vinaigrette!

  3. What a great idea. I love that you have different varieties of salad.

  4. My son will eat practically anything if it is on a stick. I'll have to give this a try!
