Day 11 - Salad on a Stick

It was Friday night and as always, we were strapped for time. Our friend's dinner party started in an hour and we needed something quick, fresh, bite-sized and full of Paleo nutrition to bring over.  As were getting ready to go, Pat comes up with this genius idea for a dish, 'Salad on a Stick'.

1 cucumber
Fresh cherry tomatoes
Fresh basil
3 chicken breasts, baked in 5-spice + tamari
Tahini Sauce, blended (garlic, parsley, lemon juice, tahini)

Once everything was chopped and ready, Pat skewered the salad and I went to work on the homemade tahini sauce. We packaged everything up and were on our way in record time.

Salad on a Stick was a hit and our friends prepared amazing courses that included Cornish hen, mashed cauliflower, salad and a paleo-friendly apple crumble. We couldn't leave without party favours, and this super cute gift came courtesy of fellow food blogger Kate and Nathan. Full to the brim on guilt free foods and good wine, I can't think of a better way to start the weekend with amazing friends.
