Tailgate/Picnic Salad On A Stick
It is great for tailgating, picnics, lunch boxes, or any place where a bowl and fork may not be convenient.
Just choose your favorite ingredients - for vegetable or fruit salad - thread on a throw-away plastic or wooden skewer, add dressing in a disposable plastic cup (or even a ziplock baggie).
No mess to tote home, kids love it, and the variations are endless!
