How to Get Your Kids to Eat Salad (Put flowers in it!!!)

>> Friday, June 11, 2010

Mix a mesclun salad mix with strawberries, toasted walnuts, green onions, and the pansies that you need to pick out of your garden and replace with the more summery petunias, and drizzle with a basic balsamic vinaigrette. A salad no child could resist!

Balsamic Vinaigrette

MAKES 1/4 cup
COST: $0.80

1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. dark brown sugar, optional
salt and pepper to taste
  • Mix ingredients thoroughly and pour on salad.

Laughing, because my 5 year old said, I love strawberries, but 'EW' there's a flower in it! :)

@Emily - Funny! I bet you can guess which one of my kids wasn't keen on the flowers either.
