Using Herbs at Melrose Elementary

Herbs and spices are at the heart of culinary art, today we are trying some of our garden herbs in salad dressing.
Salad dressings can be healthy and simple; we will learn to make our own.
We lay out some herbs, label them, smell them, then we go try to find them in the garden.
Then every table picks some herbs they want in their salad dressing, and puts them in our make shift mixer. We add olive oil and a squeeze of lemon as a base, and then give a shake. For sure, no sugar or additives in this bottle!
Then we decide to pick our lettuce and broccoli for the salad.It is so fresh and delicious.
The kids actually cleaned the bowl!
