Go forkless this summer with a wedge salad on a stick! Perfect parties when served with either Chunky Bleu Cheese or Homestyle Ranch salad dressing from our sponsor, Litehouse Dressings.
I am the salad queen of my family. Whenever we have dinner together, which is about once a week, I bring a salad. I've gotten creative with salads in the past adding in fun ingredients like fruit or nuts. Summer is my favorite time to create fun new salad recipes because of all the super fresh produce. The tomatoes! The cucumbers!
I love a good wedge salad with crunchy iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and of course, bacon. Drizzled with ranch or bleu cheese dressing and it's the best. For summer, I like to have fun with salads and since everything is better on a stick, we put a wedge salad on a stick!
Wedge Salad on a Stick
The ingredient list is pretty simple. You'll need iceberg lettuce. After that, the rest is up to you! I used red onion, grape tomatoes, and everyone's favorite vegetable, bacon. Avocado and cucumbers would be great on these, too.
While you're in the vegetable aisle choosing salad ingredients, stop by the refrigerated section and pick up a couple of jars of Lithouse Dressing's Chunky Bleu Cheese or Homestyle Ranch dressing to dip the salad in. We always buy our salad dressings in the refrigerated section of the produce aisle. It's not only convenient, but the cold dressing is perfect for crisp, fresh vegetables.
To make the salad, start by cutting the lettuce and onion into quarters. You want large wedge shaped pieces that are sturdy enough to handle being skewered by the stick.
Then start layering. I did 3 layers of lettuce, onion, bacon, and tomato. Leave plenty of the skewer empty on the bottom for a handle. These are bit on the heavy side so you don't want to load them up.
At the end of the third layer, pop a tomato on the pointy end of the skewer. Layer the kebabs on a platter for serving. At this point, you could drizzle the kebabs with salad dressing.
But since no one ever likes the same salad dressing, I served the salad with a bowl of Litehouse Chunky Bleu Cheese and Homestyle Ranch on the side for dipping. Don't forget you can find it right in the produce aisle!
