How To Make Texas Steak and Salad on a Stick
One of the easiest ways to make a meal more exciting is by turning it into a kabob. This classic Texan dish is perfect for skewering. Avocado Ranch turns this steak and salad combo into a sensory experience. You won’t even have to ring the dinner bell — when your cowpokes smell this meal, they’ll come galloping to the table!
NatureSweet Glorys® add sweet, tangy flavor to these kabobs. We’re fans of the juicy addition of these bite-size tomatoes, but we also love how easy they are to prepare. NatureSweet Glorys are packaged in a unique carton that doubles as a colander. To wash them, just remove the sticker and rinse them in the carton in your sink. Then use the carton in one of these fun projects!
We also skewered chunks of iceberg lettuce, chopped red onion, and of course, cubes of grilled steak onto each of our kabobs. The order doesn’t matter too much; just make sure every kabob gets a helping of each delicious ingredient. No one wants to miss out!
Making the dressing is simple, too. Just add all of the ingredients to a mason jar and whisk them together. Drizzle a bit of the dressing over the kabobs, then leave the rest out as a dip.
