Before we know it the snow will be melted, the air will be warm and it will be time to spend our weekends and evenings outside. With that happy thought in mind I created these salads in the hopes of fighting off a little bit of spring fever and to prepare for the warm months that are promised to follow the dreary months we are currently experiencing.
If you know me well you know I am a creative and artistic person… When deciding on a blog topic I thought, “Why not let that creativity shine through with the foods I create?” This food art is titled; “Salad On A Stick” and I just love how great they turned out! My coworkers would agree, as they were completely gone shortly after setting them out to eat at the office.
The first secret to a really great Salad On A Stick is to have foods with lots of color and great variety for guests to pick and choose from. The second secret is to have salad dressings that everyone will love! Wishbone has my favorite dressings and their great flavor can really spruce up a salad! I picked all of my favorites to set out when I made these for my coworkers to try. My favorite flavors are Italian, Western, Ranch and of course I had to include the Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette. If you want to take your salad from okay to outstanding then pick up these delicious dressings from Wishbone to try. Believe me when I say your guests will thank you.
These appetizers are as easy to make as 1, 2, 3.
- First pick up your fixins’, dressings and kabob sticks. I purchased blocks of cheese, a variety of meat, hard-boiled eggs, cucumbers, olives, tomatoes and a head of lettuce to break up.
- Then cut up your food into cubes or bite size pieces. This will make them easier to eat and less messy for your guests.
- Finally prepare them in an eye appealing fashion on the kabob stick. If you’re looking for a more do-it-yourself concept you could make a kabob bar! Simply set the sticks at the beginning of the line, the cubed food in the middle and the Wishbone dressing at the end. Guests will marvel at your creativity and appreciate the opportunity to add their favorite items to their Salad On A Stick.
Salads On A Stick are great for a multitude of events. From barbeques, graduation parties, picnics, potlucks, dinner on the patio, or even as a side for a Bloody Mary bar they are the perfect appetizers and I promise everyone will love them and you’ll love how quick and easy they are to prep for.
The next time snow is in the forecast or the winter weather is getting you down, just remember this blog and be optimistic that soon spring and summer will be here and you’ll have a delicious appetizer to bring to all of your warm weather events!
I hope this crafty creation can bring some inspiration to your life! Be sure to check out the rest of my blog with the link below!
