It takes a lot to get my kids excited about a salad. Run of the mill salads don’t even stand a chance. Sure, you might put it on their plate, but they’re just going to push it around and then scrape it into the trash.
Until now. I couldn’t believe how they ate every bite of this Chopped Chicken Salad with Creamy Peanut Dressing from their plates…and then asked for more?!
Maybe it’s the bite-sized nature of a chopped salad. Or maybe it was the flavors of the vibrant, fresh produce. Or perhaps it was the creamy peanut dressing that covered every bite with comfort and love.
Who knows. All I can say is that I’m making this salad again. Soon!
