Chopped Salad

Chopped Salad Recipe

Kids will go for chopped salads with lots of color, such as this one with edamame, chopped apple, and candied nuts. Most kids like the crunch of romaine lettuce, and letting them toss the ingredients in the bowl helps, too. The best part? Lunch is ready in 10 minutes.
