Who says you have to eat salad with a fork? Food Network’s unique recipe for Salad on a Stick (pictured above) is the ultimate way to have fun with your food. Iceberg lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumber and carrot slices are layered high and drizzled with a creamy blue cheese dressing.

Serve your kids cool French Toast Kebobs from Food.com and they’ll actually want to eat breakfast before school. Cubes of baked bread are stacked high on a stick in between layers of fresh berries and bananas. Dunked in warm maple syrup, these kebobs are a sweet morning treat.
