kids cooking saladPosted: September 10, 2010
Remember our delicious salad that we had at our kids cooking cook-out?
Many of you loved the fresh flavors from the herbs, the easy-to-make croutons and the home-made ranch dressing. It was a salad full of flavor and so different from the standard iceberg lettuce salads a lot of us are used to. Many of you requested the recipe – here it is, go make it for your families!
