Fun Food Friday - Rainbow Salad
To go along with our Potato Soup, we enjoyed this Rainbow Salad, which I've had in my head for a few weeks as a fun way for the Sprouts to enjoy a little salad bar at home and top their greens with the full spectrum of colors.
We used tomatoes, carrots, yellow pepper, peas and cabbage, omitting a blue because, frankly, I couldn't think of one. Next time, we may try taking our toppings to the sweet side so we can add some blueberries for a full rainbow.
Here are some other ideas to mix and match your own Rainbow Salad:
Red: tomatoes, red pepper, beets, strawberries, dried cranberries
Orange: carrots, orange pepper, mandarin oranges
Yellow: yellow pepper, yellow squash
Green: peas, broccoli, green beans, asparagus, green pepper,snow peas, green grapes
Purple: purple cabbage, purple grapes
The Sprouts loved choosing their toppings with the colorful veggies! More fun salad ideas are coming soon to Fun Food Friday!
