Salad Cups

Here is one recipe from the book!

Could your children have any more fun eating their salad?

This is easy to make and makes such a pretty side dish or appetizer. Your children could also take them in their lunchbox. Place the greens in a baggie, a bit of dressing in a baggie and the cups in a sandwich container. He or she can assemble and enjoy right in the cafeteria.

Your child will puff up with pride when he or she presents these little Salad Cups to family and friends to enjoy.

Salad Cups
from the kids cookbook Picture Me Cooking

12 slices white or wheat bread
3 TBS melted butter
Fixins for your favorite salad or just keep it simple with lettuce, tomatoes, carrots and some dressing or a Caesar Salad.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Use a rolling pin to slightly roll out each slice of bread (kids love that part).
A few rolls should do it. Cut out 2-3 inch rounds from each slice using a biscuit cutter or a circle cookie cutter (in a pinch use a glass).
Insert one bread round into each section of your cupcake pan, pressing down slightly, forming a cup shape. Lightly brush each one with the butter.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly brown and crispy. Cool.

When ready to serve, fill cups with the chopped salad tossed with dressing of your choice.

You can fill the cups with Caesar salad sprinkled with some fresh shaved Parmesan or some chopped up raw veggies of your choice tossed with a bit of dressing. Whatever you or the kids may enjoy!

Happy Cooking!!
