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!
