A Fun, Low Carb Appetizer Or Side Dish

I have to say, I’m not a big salad guy at all. I eat plenty of other vegetables, just not in salad form. But I do love an antipasto salad…minus the salad part.

Then I thought about combining antipasto and salad together and putting it on a stick to make it more fun to eat.

Did it work? I think it did. This is the BEST way ever to get your little guys to eat salad, I’m telling you. If it worked on a grown adult, I mean…

Add a homemade dressing for dipping on the side and you’ve got yourself a healthy, low carb recipe worthy of parties. We also make these for a fun, lighter dinner at home during the warmer months when no one feels like cooking.

Salad For Appetizers? Yes.

Heck yes! These Antipasto Salad Kabobs would be a super fun way to serve salad at your next party. This kabob recipe would also double as a side dish for dinner!

All you have to do is grab your favorite meats and cheeses and whatever other antipasto ingredients you like, olives, roasted red peppers…whatever you can think of.

Then I just threaded them on a wooden skewer and put some (some) lettuce leaves on there too. It’s not a LOT of salad, but it counts right?

For parties, you could even set out a bunch of different salad dressings and have a fun, salad kabob bar! I mean, there’s really no other way that salad can be this fun, people.

      Thank you! I actually just bought them that way, I found them right at the grocery store! Before I found them I was going to do thin slices from the deli, folded then skewered. Either way would be great!

    Wow Mother’s Day and my mom wants everyone to bring a salad and I dont like salad so this is an easy alternative because I can eat everything else other than the greens.

      You’re right Amye, the lettuce won’t really hold up well, especially when it’s put next to the other ingredients. The great part about this recipe though is that it’s fast to put together!

      Our younger son LOVES salad, he eats it almost every night so when we make these it’s the best night ever for him!
