Quick Salad Kabobs

There is a rumor going around, and it’s a vicious untruthful bit of nasty gossip. There are some people spreading such nonsense as the impossibility of a quick, easy and delicious meal. Well, let me tell you that’s just pure and simply crazy talk. With our Quick Salad Kabobs by the time you start, you’re finished. Yep, that quick.

Quick Salad Kabobs

All you need is fresh ingredients and protein, that’s all, that easy. We used baby spinach, a crisp apple cut into small cubes, mini sweet red bell peppers, cucumber cubes, slices of cheddar and baby Swiss Cheese from Castle Wood Reserve, homemade pan roasted croutons, garden fresh cherry tomatoes, spinach leaves and sliced deli ham and turkey from Castle Wood Reserve Deli Meats. Why Castle Wood Reserve deli meats? Well, with no yucky binders, and minus MSG, subtract the trans-fat and for those that care (we care) Castle Wood Reserve is gluten free. With so much good stuff going on it is an easy choice. Because in the end, the good stuff doesn’t need bad stuff to be delicious. And Castle Wood Reserve satisfies our need for high quality in the foods we eat.

And if that wasn’t enough, I drizzled the kabobs with creamy homemade Herb & Garlic Buttermilk Dressing. Our boys loved them, and if the kids approve then I must be doing something right in the kitchen!
