I am a BLT-devotee and this “salad on a stick” is a fun way to get picky eaters to eat more produce… especially when it’s mingled with bacon and creamy ranch dressing. You can simplify the recipe and serve it with a store-bought dressing or put in a bit more effort and prep my lightened-up DIY version. Folks can drizzle the dressing over the top of their skewer or pull off each piece and dunk each bite into the ranch dressing before popping it in their mouth. My gang likes to drizzle the dressing over the skewer tops for a true “finger-lickin’ good” messy experience. This recipe is easy to scale up or down depending on your crowd. Recruit your crew to help assemble to ramp up the fun factor. Trust me, your football receivers will be thrilled.
