Introduction:
Salad on a stick? We gave the classic Italian salad a brand new look and made it fun for the whole family! We skewered the mouth watering combination of creamy mozzarella, fresh sweet cherry tomatoes, and homegrown basil, drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil and a pinch of sea salt. Kids are crazy about this salad and parents know they are getting good sources of vitamins A, C and calcium. Pair this colorful stick with your favorite grilled entrée and whole-grain side dish and you have a balanced meal.
Ingredients:

(Per "stick")

¾ oz fresh mozzarella cheese (approximately 3 round cheese balls)
3 basil leaves
3 cherry tomatoes
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
⅛ teaspoon sea salt (optional)
Bamboo skewer

Directions:
  1. In order, assemble cheese, basil and tomato onto the skewer until all ingredients are stacked beautifully.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over assembled skewer, and add a pinch of sea salt if desired. Enjoy!
