Hello again! Thank you joining my little chefling and me in celebrating Food Revolution all year long.
(If you are joining us now: The big day is over (a full recap and links to all the albums HERE) and like we promised each other we are going to keep this revolution alive 365 days and create a healthier and happier world! This year Food Revolution Day was, above all, about sharing the power of cooking and we are focusing on ten recipes that together can teach us all the skills we need to feed ourselves and our families good, nutritious food for years to come! Each month I will be sharing one out of the ten Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution recipes so we can all cook it together with our children. Just one recipe in 30 days! Yes, that is it, so doable right? And at the end of the year, I assure you we will have children who will appreciate new flavours, taste new ingredients and flavours, develop a love for real food and will make tons of happy memories with you in the kitchen).
Month four. Recipe four.
I hope the little ones had a lovely summer and are happy to be back at school. It is still pretty warm and we can’t wait for October to welcome the pleasant weather.
Till then, this fresh and simple green salad will have to do which is the fourth recipe that the kids are going to master this year.
Simple Green Salad With Lemon Dressing
If you use lovely fresh leaves and dress them properly, even the most basic salad like this one will taste absolutely amazing. The combination of oil and acid in the dressing helps our bodies to absorb more of the nutrients from the greens. Super clever!
Although you don’t need to, you can always add extras like cooked green beans or sweet raw peas – see what’s growing in your garden and go with what looks best.
Here is super fun video for your little ones that they can watch before they begin making their crunchy salad.
