A fun way to serve salad to kids and a great way for fussy eaters to get exposure to new foods
Trying to get my kids to eat veggies is hard enough but salad… no chance!
Always trying to make foods more fun and interesting for them, I made these Salad Cups to hopefully inspire them to try even just a little bit!
The base of the salad cups is made from large tortilla wraps.
I used a round pastry cutter to cut out six circles.
If you don’t have a pastry cutter, anything round like a jar will work just fine.
Make the outline of the circle shape and then use a knife to cut it out completely.
You need six circles like this.
Don’t throw away the scraps from the wrap. Spray them with a little oil and bake in the oven to make some homemade tortilla chips!
Next, spray a muffin tray with spray oil.
Push the wrap circles in and at 180c fan for 10 minutes.
The wraps will be very hot so leave them to cool for a few minutes before popping out of the tin.
In the meantime cut up any salad ingredients that you like. I used:
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Cheddar Cheese
Fill the tortilla cups with the salad. It’s even better if you can get the kids to do this themselves.
It’s a great way to build exposure to new foods like salad, even if it is just interacting with the food and not actually eating it.
