What the Beck???

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location: Salad on a Stick
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 125 calories each, if 12 skewers are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

This is an extremely pretty item to serve. My frustration came when I tried to cut iceberg lettuce into cubes.  It just wouldn’t work because the head just fell apart. I then decided to roll the lettuce, so I could skewer it. It was frustrating, but it worked. At first I did not want to make it again, but every single skewer was eaten, and I heard many complements from the Barnett immediate and extended families.  Who knew? I will make it again, after all.

Here are the ingredients that I used to create this recipe.

See - ya just can't wedge it, but this was good enough for me.
I was making 4 recipes to take to the Barnett's home
on Easter Sunday. Denise was gracious and let me
make a few yummy Pioneer Woman recipes.

Next, came a cherry tomato.

I loved adding the English cucumber and 
chunk of mild cheddar to the skewer.

I think they were quite beautiful.

The recipe made 12 skewers, but I made 18 because that
is how many I could make with the entire head of lettuce.

Now, on to the dressing.

I began by adding olive oil to a bowl.

The next ingredient was red wine vinegar.

Italian seasoning was then added as was

the salt and pepper.
I only held the containers like this
for the photo because I had already 
added them to the mix.

Whisk it together.
I served it in a small canning jar.
The recipe said to brush it on the skewers,
but we didn't have a brush so I just poured
a small amount over each skewer.

 Look at all of this yummy food!

 Miss Emily Barnett enjoyed the skewer!

She is such a riot!
