The Tale of Two Salads, this week in FAIL
I am working on adding more greens and whole grains to my families diet. Not that we don’t love nachos, chicken fried steak and creamy, dreamy gravy….because we do.
It’s more about making wise choices about the food I feed my family.
I made two salads recently with two very different results.
The first salad I made was similar to Weight Watchers Greek Lemon-Dill Grilled Chicken Salad
One change I made….I placed the roasted red pepper into the food processor with the dressing. My kids are iffy about eating any color peppers, so if they can’t see them….well, what they do not know does not hurt them.
The salad was filling and really quite tasty.
The second salad I made was not so well received. I made a Cesar Salad with kale. Not unlike the salad over at Savoring Every Bite I made mine with raw kale.
I really like this salad. Kale has a strong flavor, the Cesar dressing stood up to the kale and truly held its own.
My husband and children did not care for the kale salad. Bummer. So….
Family wise it was a FAIL.
Kale is very good for you. I’ll keep trying to find a way to get my family to eat kale.
Monday, I will tell you about a wonderful giveaway I’ll be hosting thanks to MyBlogSpark.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
