    “The Stuff that Makes Lettuce Taste Better”

    One of the kids came home from school yesterday with a handout from the “Garden to Table” program, a project designed to encourage children to learn how to grow their own food.

    As my son handed the sheet over, he said, “Mom, this is the stuff that makes lettuce taste better.”

    And as I looked down, there on the page was a recipe for salad dressing.

    So as a tribute to all of the moms out there who have kids that are loathe to try anything new, especially veggies, I thought I’d highlight the recipe that my son brought home.

    Disclosure: he is Chief Picky Officer (CPO), and this recipe has been CPO-approved.
