This simple salad is a great way to get kids into eating salad and its full of goodness. You can swap in different ingredients if you like to make your own version.


This is a simple salad that I often enjoy.  I start with lettuce which is usually baby spinach or romaine.  Then I slice little cherry tomatoes and slice the avocado pear and add them to the lettuce.  I then crumble some feta cheese and sprinkle over and top this creation off with pine nuts.

For the dressing I also like to keep it simple so it is just some light virgin olive oil mixed with balsamic vinegar and lemon juice.  Pour over, mix, serve and enjoy.

Kids can really own this recipe, from washing the leaves and slicing the avocado (using a table knife) at the start, to crumbling the feta and sprinkling over the pine nuts at the end. They can also measure the dressing ingredients, ideally into a jar ready to shake, shake, shake…
