My mom is always trying to get us to eat more greens and will go to great lengths to do so (if you've met my mom and seen her in action then you know exactly what I'm talking about).
She's tried everything including pretty plates, decorating with colorful fruit, hiding them in a casserole, etc. And when those tactics don't work, she's not opposed to bribery, threats, or outright lies like the time she told us we were having hotdogs (yeah, right!), which turned out to be made of carrots. Like we really thought she'd allow a hotdog in our house.
Well, lies and tricks be gone! Ever since she came up with this awesome recipe, she no longer has to convince us to eat our greens. I crave this salad and always ask for it when I'm home from college. My mom makes it in big batches and serves it several times a week. I like an extra splash of lemon/lime on mine.
Give it a try and let us know what you think!
