“Salad on a stick is a fair food we can get behind. Threading salad ingredients onto a skewer makes for a fun presentation of this tasty salad. Be careful not to overcook the bacon as crispy bacon can be hard to skewer.”

Ingredients

    • 1 (1-inch-thick) slice red onion, layers separated, cut into 1-inch pieces
    • ¼ cup reduced-fat plain yogurt
    • ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese
    • 1 tablespoon chopped scallion
    • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
    • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
    • ⅛ teaspoon salt
    • ½ head iceberg lettuce, cut into 1-inch slices and then into 24 1-inch chunks
    • 16 cherry tomatoes
    • 4 slices cooked bacon, each slice cut into 4 pieces

Directions

  • 1 Soak onion in ice water for 10 minutes.
  • 2 Meanwhile, combine yogurt, blue cheese, scallion, vinegar, pepper and salt in a small bowl.
  • 3 Drain the onion. Alternately thread 3 chunks of lettuce, 2 tomatoes, 2 pieces of bacon and 2 pieces of onion on each of 8 skewers. Spoon the yogurt dressing over the skewers.
