Dinner Salad my Kids Will Eat...
-cubed cheddar cheese
-quartered/sliced cucumber (unpeeled but scored with a fork to soak up dressing)
(lightly salt, if desired - salt is for the cucumbers)
~1 C frozen blueberries
~5 frozen strawberries
The fruit will melt into a nice sauce. Slice up the strawberries. Add fruit (with juices) to main salad bowl. Mix well.
Add 3 splashes of balsamic vinegar.
Add 1 splash of olive oil
add a tiny squirt of lemon juice.
Serve over a bed of fresh, baby spinach. We had ours with toast on the side.
Strong Bear: Ewwwwww! I don't want to try it mom.
Strong Bear: I don't want to eat the black stuff.
Mom: oh. I thought you liked blueberries.
Beautiful Rabbit: Those are blueberries??? [squeals] I thought they were beans.
Strong Bear: I want some, I want some!!
Everyone asked for seconds...and thirds...and they even finished off the spinach so they could have more salad. Poor Haqon was late getting home and only got 1 bite. I wanted to add some rings of onion to the top of the salad, but I know my kids would never go for it, so I left them off. If you try it w/ the onions, let me know if they work with the salad.
