4 whole-wheat English muffin halves, quartered
Ingredient Line: 
4 vegetarian burgers, such as Boca Burger, quartered
Ingredient Line: 
16 red onion wedges (½ medium onion)

16 cherry tomatoes

8 oz. reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, cut into 16 cubes

2 Tbs. garlic oil
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup low-fat plain yogurt

8 cups mesclun greens


1. Thread English muffin wedge, veggie burger wedge, onion wedge, and cherry tomato onto skewer. Sandwich Cheddar cube between 2 pickle slices, if desired, and slide onto skewer. Continue adding ingredients until each of 4 skewers holds 4 English muffin quarters, 4 burger quarters, 4 onion wedges, 4 cherry tomatoes, and 4 pickle-cheese sandwiches.
