Little Miss Five loves to be my helper in the kitchen and is Queen of Chopping. If you need a cucumber slicing, she’s your girl. Even though it adds extra time to the cooking I love encouraging the girls to help out in the kitchen, enjoying their company and watching them learning new skills as they go.
And to encourage some kitchen knife skills, what better than a Chop Salad – a meal which a five-year-old can proudly put together by herself.
How to make Chop Salad
:: Try a selection of lettuce, cucumber, peppers, celery, raddish, sugarsnap peas and chop them all up
:: Layer them on a plate and add some handfuls of sweetcorn and beans (we like black eyed beans best)
:: Grate some cheese and sprinkle it over your salad
:: Serve with a few tortilla chips and a dollop of soured cream
Easy peasy, child-friendly and yummy chop salad. What are you waiting for? Give it a go. Chop chop!
