Cooking with Karel Anne: Salad on a stick

It's a Labor Day party and you want to add something more healthy than the usual cookout fare, but no one seems to want a fork!
Try the salad on a stick for a vegetable option. Have a small pitcher or squeeze bottle of dressing, and you have a portable salad.

While it may be the 'official' end of summer, nutrition should never take a vacation!
