Change up your boring salad with this Chef Salad on a Stick! Even the kids will love salad this way!

Do you feel like you make the SAME THINGS day in and day out? Are you tired of trying to get your kids to eat their veggies?

We have the perfect solution for you! Try our Chef Salad on a Stick recipe as an addition to your midweek meal, after school snack, or get together with friends.

I am honestly not sure of the psychology behind why food becomes so appealing once it’s skewered on a kabob stick, but for whatever reason, it works.

I can’t get my kids to eat tomatoes or cucumbers but thread them on this bamboo skewer and they are eating them quicker than I can serve them. I am definitely not going to complain about that!

This Chef Salad on a Stick is so easy to make, even the kids can help! All you will need are a few veggies, some hard boiled eggs, ham, cheese, homemade croutons, and of course the bamboo skewers! This is truly perfection on a stick.

Homemade Croutons for Salad on a Stick

Don’t let the idea of homemade croutons intimidate you. These really couldn’t be easier to make.

Simply brush Italian bread (cut into cubes) with Olive Oil and seasonings. Pop them in the oven at 450 degrees F for about 5 minutes (just enough time for them to get crispy). Then let them cool. Super easy!

The hardest part will be trying to not eat them all before you get them on the skewers. 😉

Once the croutons have cooled and everything is cut into slices or cubes, you can start assembling.

Use our kabobs as a model or assemble them any way you like! That’s the fun part!

They can be eaten plain or dipped in your favorite dressing or sauce. We used Ranch Dressing with ours.
