Every once in awhile you just have to play with your food!  Here’s a great way to take salad to a whole new, memorable level while packing in a bunch of veggie fun.

Simply pull out a mini chopper, layout a salad buffet that includes everyone’s favorites.  Let each person chop & build their way to a little dinner yum by following the directions below.

Salad Stuffed Racecars by Jodie Fitz

2 small peppers*

1 cup Fresh Express® Salad mix

1 cup Eat Smart® vegetable medley with broccoli, cauliflower & carrots

1/8 cup Seffon Farms® pistachio nuts


Price Chopper Sliced olives

1 - 2 tablespoons of Marie’s yogurt based ranch dressing

Create the Car Base: using a sharp knife, cut an oval in top of the pepper. Clean out the center & rinse the pepper. You may possibly have to shave a slight edge with a sharp knife on the exterior/bottom of the pepper so that it has a flat edge to rest on.

*Use a small pepper.  Waxed Hungarian, Italian peppers or the Sunset baby bells work best.

Create wheels: Wash & slice the cucumber.  Spread come cream cheese on one side of the slices you are planning to use for wheels & attach them to the sides.

 Fill the Race Cars: In a mini chipper or food processor, chop the salad mix, vegetable medley & pistachios until chopped well. Stir in the dressing. Fill the car base & add an olive slice for a steering wheel.
