This is more of an idea or method than an actual recipe, as the ingredients and amounts will be of your choosing.
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!
