Spike It Salad

This little salad you can eat with your hands is the perfect compliment to other heavier tailgating and barbecuing foods. I wanted a dish that didn't have meat, you could eat with your hands, and that was bit on the lighter side to balance out all the cheesy and barbecue-y goodness happening with the rest of the tailgate menu. And it's so convenient! No utensils necessary. Just drizzle your favorite salad dressing over the top and eat like shish kabob!
