These Six delicious and nutritious salads are a Must Try before the summer ends. They are perfect to go with lunch boxes.
Hi there. September is here and we are about to say goodbye to summer. I am already in a ‘Fall’ state of mind, especially now when one of the trees in my backyard has already started to lose its leaves. I am really looking forward to the holiday season this year. It’s our first Christmas at our new house. I can’t wait to get all prepped up for the upcoming months.
There are still a few days of summer, so to make the most of those, today I have compiled a list of Six delicious as well as nutritious salads for kids and grown-ups to go with their meals. These are great for lunch boxes too. Each of these salads has a unique flavor. The combination of fruits vegetables and nuts in these salads makes them healthy eating. Let’s go through the list.
You can’t go wrong with this one. Filled with the freshness of sweet watermelon, mint, and mixed berries, this sweet and sour salad is a healthy side to your summer meal.
When it comes to eating carrots, kids usually have excuses. Next time make this salad and serve. It is filled with the flavors of cumin, ginger, and mustard seed, and a little tang of the lime.
Turnips are a great addition to your child’s diet. They are a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, calcium, folate, fiber, and manganese. It has various antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. They support cardiovascular and digestive health. In the following recipe, I have shredded raw turnips and added spiced oil. The end result is an aromatic and flavorful salad full of nutritional benefits.
This is one fun trick to use for adding vegetables to your little one’s plate. My daughter loves noodles or anything that is shaped like noodles. So I used a spiral cutter to cut the cucumber into noodles. Then added yogurt, dill, and roasted peanuts. A quick and delicious salad was ready to serve.
Pickled cucumbers are another one of my daughter’s favorites. I made this salad into a meal for her. Mixed pickled cucumber, apple, dill and vegan mayo with cooked bow tie pasta. The sweet and tart flavors of this pasta salad are absolutely kids approved.
If you have greens, fresh fruits, and nuts in your refrigerator, then you are all set to make this quick salad with Poppyseed dressing. Maybe your next lunch?
Isn’t this list tempting? I promise that you won’t be disappointed with any of these salads. How about trying some of these for the upcoming long weekend.
Hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend. See you all soon again.
