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.
