making an "adult dinner" child-friendly
Last week, I told you we had this amazing salad for dinner. That post generated a few emails from friends who asked "if my kids really ate that for dinner?". In its' original iteration, it's a loaded Chinese chicken salad. But even that original recipe had too many ingredients for me, so I simplified it a bit. And while the ingredients themselves might be child-friendly, I don't know many kids who relish arriving to the dinner table to find a big entree salad served up. So....
voila! Here's the secret to how I get my kids to eat what we might all consider "adult" meals. I don't do any extra prep for them, I simply dish the ingredients out separately for them as I am tossing our salad ingredients into a big bowl.
