{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} {Kid Friendly} Salad Snack On A Stick


{Kid Friendly} Salad Snack On A Stick

Olives, tomatoes, meats, and cheese are piled onto skewers, along with plenty of crunchy lettuce. While this one-handed salad is my idea of the perfect party food, my kids declared this one of the best lunches we've ever made. My youngest son, the child with olives on every fingertip every chance he gets, happily filled an entire skewer with olives and tomatoes.


When the California Olive Committee asked me if I'd like to share a favorite way to snack on olives, I almost laughed. I buy olives constantly, yet they don't always make it into the planned dishes. The minute my boys spy a can of olives in the pantry, they ask if we can open it for snacking. For my family, simplicity is best when olives are involved, and these salad snacks are as simple as it gets!

COOK'S NOTE: Anything goes with this recipe. The directions are really just guidelines. My kids filled their skewers with all their favorite items. For serving a crowd, these can be made several hours in advance and kept covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Olives: extra large ripe black or ripe green olives

Tomatoes: grape, cherry, chocolate cherry, sunburst

Cheese: mini mozzarella balls, cubes of cheddar

Meats, sliced very thin: prosciutto, black forest ham, roast beef, oven roasted turkey

Greens: butter lettuce, green leaf, romaine

Wooden skewers


Thread an assortment of olives, tomatoes, cheese, meats and greens through the skewers. Pile the skewers on a tray or platter and enjoy!



God Bless and have a GREAT DAY!
