This isn't a recipe. It is a trick I stumbled upon and want to share with you:)

My husband, my 5 year old and I really love salad. And although my 7 year old and my 2 year old love veggies - salad is not on their list of faves. I have always thought that Mr. 7 and Miss 2 didn't like salad because they are allergic to eggs - which takes out almost all dressing options. C'mon people - what is salad without the dressing???

A few weeks ago I was making Creamy Honey Lime Dressing and it hit me. What if I drizzled honey on Mr. 7 and Miss 2's salads as a dressing. I'm not talking about gouping it on (like so many of us do with our trusty Ranch dressings) but just drizzling it on so that they too can experience how wonderful salads are.

Since then, we have had a side salad almost every night and everyone's plates have been licked clean. Miss 2 said "you're right Mom, salad is crunchy and sweet - I love it!"

Give it a try - if your kids don't like typical salad dressings - this could be the key to getting them to eat their delicious veggies!!
