Spring Garden Salad at Foster

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Spring has sprung and many of the veggies we planted in the wintertime are now ready to harvest. The kids at Foster were very excited when I announced we were going to make a salad together. Using greens and herbs solely from the garden, we tore everything into pieces, sprinkled the salad with storebought sunflower seeds and a homemade vinaigrette. We identified how many colors we were eating — reds, greens, and purples — and I told these kids to remember that the more colors they can eat in one meal, the happier, stronger and smarter they will be.

This salad is always a hit with the kids and they ask for seconds and thirds!

 One kid even announced, "I have a green tongue!" after gobbling up his plate.
