I am an expert lunch box packer. I have found that creating a lunch box menu is the best way to ensure that my guys like their meals and I have the right foods on hand each day. So every Sunday night, I gather my guys and we come up with a dinner menu AND a lunch box menu as a way to make sure we are all on the same page.
While sandwiches are a frequent addition to our lunch boxes, sometimes we have to shake things up. In place of a standard sandwich, my guys love to eat Salami & Cheese Skewers.
I’ll admit that these first showed up when I was out of bread. I needed a lunch option that would give my guys the protein they needed but would still work in a lunch box. Now, my guys ask for me to make these on a regular basis.
While the skewers are super simple to make, the key to these is using quality meat and cheeses. There’s no bread to hide a low quality meat/cheese so you have to go with the good stuff! That means it’s time to pull out the Tillamook Cheese.
I like to offer my guys a couple of different flavors of cheese with their meat. Thankfully, Tillamook Cheese is available in several varieties at Publix. I grab a couple of flavors and cut into chunks and skewer with some hard salami. The final touch is a sweet cherry tomato at the end of the skewer.
Look for 100% natural cheese made the right way since 1909 in the dairy aisle at your local Publix. Find these tasty options when you shop:

- 2 oz Tillamook Cheese, cut into 6 chunks

- Alternate the meat and cheese on 4 small skewers.
- End with a cherry tomato.
- Serve with crackers.
And if you are making sandwiches, there is a Tillamook Cheese that will help you create amazing taste that your family will love. Look for three varieties of their Farmstyle Thick Cut Slices that you’ll enjoy on sandwiches, burgers, wraps and more.
