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?
