Deli Salad Skewers with 2-Ingredient Basil Mayo
Yummy Deli Salad Skewers with apples, sliced turkey, tomatoes, lettuce, bell pepper, and cheese. Served with tasty 2-ingredient basil mayonnaise, these yummy salad skewers make a perfect party appetizer or snack for any occasion.
Servings: 12 skewers
In a small food processor or blender, process the mayonnaise and basil until smooth. Add additional basil, to taste, and season with fresh black pepper, if desired. Set aside while you prepare the skewers.
Prepare the ingredients. For the iceberg lettuce, remove the outer layers of lettuce and discard. Cut the head of lettuce into quarters, then slices about 1½-inches thick. Finally, chop each slice into small bite-size chunks.
Chop the apples into small cubes. Transfer to a bowl and drizzle with the juice from one large lemon. Gently toss to coat.
To assemble, thread one tomato, lettuce, one slice of Boar’s Head BOLD PitCraft™ Slow Smoked Turkey Breast, bell pepper, a cube of cheese, and apple onto the skewer. Repeat until you run out of room.
Serve with your homemade basil mayonnaise or other favorite salad dressing.
You can find Boar’s Head BOLD PitCraft™ Slow Smoked Turkey Breast at the deli counter of your local Safeway grocery store. Tip - request to have your turkey sliced for sandwiches so that it is not too thin.
If you don't have any fresh lemon juice, fresh lime juice, or even orange juice will help prevent the apples from browning.
I made these using regular wooden skewers (the same that you would use for grilling). Double the total amount of skewers and use shorter (6-inch) skewers instead.
- Black olives
- Spring mix lettuce
- Feta cheese
