Do-able Dinners: Strawberry Salad the Kids Can Help Make

The magic dressing:  Whole Foods sells this wonderful dressing that's almost good enough to drink!  (You can also order it on Amazon--see below.)
About two months ago a friend called up with tons of leftovers on her hands.  Following a wedding shower, she had way too much food, and we--the ones with 6 growing kids--were the lucky recipients of the yum yums.  Little did we know that it wasn't the baklava and chocolates that we would like the most--it was this salad!  Ever since, we've been addicted.  (I recently had no shame in buying 4 bottles of the dressing at once.)

Enter Montessori food prep.  Kids can wash and spin the lettuce (Spring Mix is good, but I'm not picky).  They can wash and decapitate the strawberries.  Now here's the fun part:  they can SLICE the berries with your egg slicer (yippee!).  And they can crumble the feta and sliced almonds.

The fun part!!!

Recipe for Strawberry Salad:
