Wedge Salad Skewers
“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.”
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
1Soak onion in ice water for 10 minutes.
2Meanwhile, combine yogurt, blue cheese, scallion, vinegar, pepper and salt in a small bowl.
3Drain 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.
To make ahead: Refrigerate dressing (Step 2) for up to 2 days.
