Have you ever noticed that when you provide a vegetable tray for people, most of the veggies are left at the end of the party? Not with this recipe. I don’t know if it’s the fact that they are so pretty skewered together, or if it’s the dressing marinating the vegetables, but these vegetable skewers are gone by the end of the night. I served these at Easter, and thinking I would have a ton leftover, I was pleasantly surprised to find I had just a few left for lunch the next day.
This recipe is just too simple. Take your favorite salad veggies, cut into 1″ pieces. Add chunks of your favorite cheese if you like (keep in mind this will boost the calories if you’re calorie counting), and skewer on toothpicks, or plastic skewers. Drizzle your favorite dressing over the top and serve.
I like to add fresh herbs such as basil, tarragon or thyme.
Calorie counting folks will love these if you tell them you used a light dressing. It’s something they can have and feel good about eating.
