This dish is inspired by a Basque Pintxos recipe called Gilda. A Gilda usually consists of an olive, anchovy and pepper skewered onto a toothpick. My daughter loves olives so I thought this might be a fun way to deliver them along with some other vegetables. Salad on a stick is a fun way to enjoy vegetables as canapés or with kids. I made these with my daughter and allowed her to choose which ingredients were put onto each skewer. Choose a few ingredients you know your children will like and mix them up with a few new ingredients incase they are feeling adventurous and want to try something they aren't used to eating.

Cut ingredients into small bite size pieces. Thread onto skewers or toothpicks. Enjoy!
Note: Cut the sharp spike off the end of the skewers or toothpicks to make them more child-friendly.
