Salad, Sizzling Tastebuds

Simple Summer Veg n Fruit Salad | GF and Vegan dishes

My little one has brought her learning into the kitchen with small strides and started to make small salads for dinner. I have given her a blunt knife and she diligently cuts them into salads for dinner often, with odd shapes. I told her this was a zero cook theme (something she’s familiar as they have a lot of activities at school too with no-fire cooking), so she chose to make and arrange this simple summer salad. 

Only the coriander garnish was my idea, so it feels pretty nice to have the girls contribute to small dishes on the blog. Hopefully when they grow up, they will read about these memories which make me feel so blessed.

    Looks like nowadays many schools have cooking activities or classes at school. My nephew also picked cooking as one of the school activities a year or 2 ago. She must be thrilled to see her recipe on the blog

    I love the idea of no cook implemented by kids themselves . Kudos kids could make it happen .
    I had the plan to do that with my grandkid’s but all we could do was some cookie baking !

  4. Wow! kudos to your kiddo. I love when the kids put in their little hands to work in the kitchen. Though they might be simple recipes, the sentiment is important. Love it.
