I am so honored to be one of fifty food bloggers participating in the virtual progressive dinner Share Our Strength’s Share Our Holiday Table campaign for No Kid Hungry™. When I was asked to participate, I couldn’t wait to bring recognition to this wonderful cause.
No Kid Hungry™, an unprecedented, five-year effort designed to end childhood hunger in America. Our nation has the food and programs in place to end childhood hunger, but consider what we are up against: The stigmas and embarrassment that surround hunger, the challenges presented by access to healthy food, and the struggle to connect children with the resources they need to thrive. For 25 years, Share Our Strength has been confronting hunger head-on to break down these barriers. Together, with your support, we can put an end to childhood hunger.
For this campaign, I’m contributing one of my very favorite salads that my son has always enjoyed – a composed chopped salad.
A composed chopped salad makes a wonderful salad to introduce to young children. All ingredients are already well-chopped, the composition of the salad provides different textures, shapes and colors, and they are able to sample ingredients to find the tastes they prefer the most. The best part is you can easily include your family’s favorite ingredients. How fun is that?
This salad by the very nature can easily be made as a gluten-free or dairy free salad. Simply omit ingredients that may cause a food sensitivity to any guests and switch out with other ingredients as you like. Serve dressing options on the side and allow your guests to add as they wish.
Here’s how I make it.
