Chef Salad on a Stick


I love fun food and what is more fun than food on a stick, right? We enjoyed dinner on the patio tonight and I made a platter of Chef Salad on a Stick skewers for us to eat. They were simple to make and tasted great- even my toddler was excited to eat salad, y'all! Serve with a side of dressing for dipping and enjoy!

In honor of Buddig's 75th Anniversary they are having a #ThankYouMealMaker video contest. I made this fun dish, Chef Salad on a Stick, inspired by my Meal Makers, my parents, who always made fun food for me to try growing up!
Check out my latest video and see who I thanked for being my Meal Makers.

Ingredients:

Makes 5 salad skewers
  • 1/2 head iceberg lettuce, chopped into 10 bite-size chunks
  • 2oz package Buddig Sliced Ham, cut into 4ths
  • 2oz package Buddig Sliced Honey Roasted Turkey, cut into 4ths
  • 5 boiled eggs, peeled and halved
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 10 chucks of cheddar cheese
  • 10 large croutons
  • Salad dressing, for dipping

Directions:

  1. Using 5 large wooden skewers thread salad ingredients, about 2 of each.
  2. I started with croutons then added add cucumber, tomato, lettuce wedge, folded sliced ham {stack a few slices together}, cube of cheese, folded sliced turkey {stacked}, half a boiled egg, and then repeat.  
  3. Repeat with four more skewers. 
  4. Serve with a side of your favorite salad dressing to dip or drizzle.
A traditional Chef Salad has both turkey and ham so I used Buddig Honey Roasted Turkey slices and Buddig Ham slices. 
Cut the stacked slices into 4ths then fold over a couple for each skewer. 
For this recipe I use 1/2 head iceberg lettuce that is chopped into 10 bite-size chunks.
I like to have all my toppings prepped and ready to go on a platter.
This makes assembly fast and easy.
I decided to add croutons and boiled eggs because they are my kids favorites. But warning they are not easy to thread on skewers. Be sure to have extra if they break and fall apart!

I am still shocked that my toddler was excited to eat salad!
