  1. Stack cheese in 2 stacks of 3 slices. Cut stack into 9 squares.

  3. Serve kabobs with thin pretzel crackers and ranch dressing.

Recipe Tips

- For easy threading, let cheese come to room temperature before threading onto skewers.

- Thin pretzel crackers are often found in the deli department of the supermarket.

- Baby seedless cucumbers are sometimes called Persian cucumbers. They are miniature versions of seedless English cucumbers.

- Can’t find 6-inch skewers? Try using toothpicks instead. Thread 1 stack of cheese, 1 ham cube and 1 vegetable onto each toothpick.

- Pack components in reusable containers. Look for bento box style reusable containers in plastic bag section of the supermarket. These containers often have 1 large compartment, great for packing kabobs, and 2 smaller compartments perfect for the dressing and crackers.

Recipe Comments and Reviews


Loved this idea! Made and sent it to school, however.. I think next time we have to do the toothpick suggestion. The skewers were quickly taken away as they were being used for sword fighting and I received a nice note to 'not send these again' as a friend got poked! Very cute idea, but did not work well for today's school lunch system. Thanks for the bent o box lunch idea!
