Antipasto salad skewers are all of the soft, creamy, crunchy, salty goodness of an antipasto salad on a finger-friendly stick for easy snacking. This post is sponsored by the United Dairy Industry of Michigan. All thoughts are my own.
I believe that I mentioned that soccer season is underway, so my food preparation time has been dramatically reduced. The next few months are all about easy, balanced meals and snacks that take minimal time to prepare.
Who am I kidding? Everyday is about throw-it-together-food, preferably items with balanced nutrition and portable enough to toss in a cooler to enjoy next to the soccer field. Crunchy granola bars and savory energy bars are great for snacking, but I often struggle to break out of the sandwich-rut when it comes to finding healthy, filling food that can be eaten on the pitch. Sure chef salads in a jar are an easy picnic solution but I often forget to pack utensils, and eating a salad with your fingers is a messy proposition.
Antipasto Salad Skewers balances all the deliciously creamy, soft and cheesy, crunchy, salty parts of an antipasto salad on one finger-food friendly stick.
I like to think of these as all of the best parts of a really great chopped salad without the hassle of needing to remember such trivial things as forks. To be honest, it takes all that I have to herd four boys into my truck with all of their water bottles, gear, and emergency food rations. I can’t be expected to remember such trivial things as napkins and utensils. What I can easily do is make this recipe to any scale that I desire, keep the Antipasto Salad Skewers covered and chilled in the refrigerator for a few days, and toss as many of the kebabs into a Ziploc bag as I need to pack in the cooler.
Antipasto Salad Skewers are excellent to have on hand for a healthy, filling snacks on hand that can also serve as a meal, or as a savory appetizer for cocktail parties and barbecues.
