Salad on a Stick
Yield: 4 servings
1 green or red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1-inch dice
1/3 seedless cucumber, diced
1/2 pint grape tomatoes
2 (1-inch-thick) pieces Genoa salami from the deli, cubed
4 ribs celery, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 cup heavy cream or whole milk
1 (5.4-ounce) container garlic and herb flavored soft cheese (recommended: Boursin)
Salt and pepper
Combine the veggies and salami on a platter and serve with 1 bamboo skewer per person.
Blend together the cream or milk and cheese. Pour into a dipping dish and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Place the dip on the platter. Use your skewers to pierce salami and veggies, stacking up a mouthful at a time. Dip each bite in dressing as you eat, but don't double dip, please! Yum-o! Salad on a stick!
