Easy Side Salad

Turn bagged salad into an easy, veggie-filled side dish for the whole family! We found a bagged salad that already had radishes, carrots and pea pods in the bad, added cucumbers, tomatoes and cheese, then topped it off with a kid favorite dressing. So easy to throw together to serve alongside dinner!

Nutrition Tip: Romaine lettuce contains vitamin C and even a bit of calcium–plus a crunch that kids like. Toppings like cheese and ranch dressing can help your kids learn to love salad.
