Here is a recipe for a basic green salad with homemade dressing. But you can add almost anything to fancy it up! We like pieces of grapefruit, a sprinkle of toasted pecans, and a handful of baby spinach. What do you like? Try adding it!
Sharp knife (adult needed)
Vegetable peeler (adult needed)
Salad servers or tongs
- 1 head romaine lettuce, washed, dried, and cut or torn into bite-size pieces
- 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 cucumber, peeled, if you like, and diced
- 1⁄4 cup Your Own Salad Dressing
Put all the ingredients into the bowl and toss. Taste a piece of lettuce. Does it need more dressing? If so, add more and toss again. Serve right away.
