Cooking with Auden: Salads

Salads are a great way to get kids involved in cooking. They are usually fresh (the salads that is) so there is little need to worry about cooking and the dangers the oven/stove can bring and in most cases things can be done without sharp knives.

Last night we made a simple salad of arugula and tomatoes with some quick croutons.

To make the croutons slice bread into thick slices and brush with oil. This is a great activity for kids. Then toast until browned and dice.

We picked up some cherry tomatoes as well. They had little stems which needed to be removed...another great activity for kids.

Toss the tomatoes and croutons with a bunch of arugula, vinegar, EVOO and salt and pepper.

Oh and kids make the best taste testers:
