Jodie Fitz of Newschannel 13's own Real Food Fast joins Dan with a trio of easy preparations perfect for kids.
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.
