Manic:  Trying to get my kids to eat more veggies, period!

Managed:  Finally found a homemade salad dressing and salad that my kids…and their friends….love!  I attend a cooking class every Wednesday night, so this recipe is from my cooking instructor, Lyn McGuire.  I’ll be blogging about my cooking class soon, too!  Here is the salad recipe….

Lyn’s Lovely Salad that My Kids Love, Too! 

My salad is pictured with yellow tomatoes and they were quite flavorful!

What You Need:

*Lettuce of your choice…we like romaine or green leaf lettuce

*Cherry Tomatoes cut in half or tomatoes of your choice

*Red onion cut in thin slices


*Sea salt

*Fresh ground pepper

*Extra virgin olive oil

*White Balsamic Vinaigrette

What You Do:

1.  Prepare your salad using lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, tomatoes and cucumber.

2.  Pour equal parts of the olive oil and white balsamic vinaigrette over the salad.  Depending on how big your salad is, you will determine how much.  For my salad pictured above, I did 1/4 cup each.  

3.  Sprinkle with a dash of salt and pepper and serve.  So delicious and nutritious!

***Lyn’s recipe did not call for cucumbers.  I added those.

      Thank you Jennifer! I never thought about adding sea salt, either until my cooking teacher taught us that and I do like it. I only add a teeny bit since I try to watch my sodium and it makes a tasty difference! Thanks so much for leaving a comment 🙂
