Yummy salad!! | Juan Cabrillo

Today was so much fun I nearly forgot to take pictures! Frank and I made salad with each class, even TK! We split the kids into groups: One group helped to harvest garden-grown lettuce, mizuna mustards, curly kale, Russian kale and dinosaur kale, chard, onions, borage flowers, nasturtium flowers and radishes. Another group chopped store-bought cucumber and shredded carrots. And another group helped to serve the salad. We dressed it with homemade lemon-honey dressing. The kids gave a thumbs up for trying it! Some even ate it for the first time!

Frank brought re-usable forks and bowls to wash and recycle with each class!
