Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    We've got more salad ideas for kids where this one came from! Transform the same ingredients into animals or other works of edible art. Add colorful bell pepper strips, carrot sticks or zucchini strips for more color.

    Trouble with getting kids to eat their daily five? Turn them loose on this Kid Salad, and they’ll be gobbling up fruits and veggies!
  • tip 3
    Be sure to dry lettuce leaves well to keep your fun salad for children from coming out soggy—use a salad spinner or pat dry with paper towels.
