If you've ever wanted to know the most basic salad recipe for beginners , then you're in the right place. This recipe is one I encourage my 6 year old to make often.
If you have children 5 years old and above, then I highly recommend this recipe as a start.
They will of course need supervision with a knife.
On days when we are tired and not in the mood for anything fancy, this salad is perfect.
It's got a lot of colour and the ingredients aren't expensive or fancy.
It's perfect for staying within the budget while being healthy.
I highly recommend making this salad with your older children as it's such a lovely way of spending time together while imparting basic cooking skills. To make it a safe experience, I ordered this knife from amazon for my 5 year old. It's super safe and comes with a finger guard.
We use it on the weekends and it's nice to see how proud she is when she helps get dinner ready.Dad helps too!
You can watch the video of how I made it down below. If you don't want to watch the whole video, then skip to the 11:37 minute mark.
We often eat this with a roast chicken or fish.
I hope you enjoy making it.
