>The newest weekly installment in our “cooking” series for preschoolers – salsa. My premonition was that we would be opening a jar and pouring – this, given that the only heat source/appliance we’ve used thus far has been a blender – but was pleasantly surprised to see an actual grocery bag containing produce appear at the end of the table of squirmy kiddoes. And yet, I should learn not to trust such things…
The first vegetable to surface was a cucumber. Mmmm-hmmm, a cucumber. Here, my dear SoCal (and other Mexican-loving) friends, is the recipe my lovely Minnesotan coworker dreamed up:
1/2 red onion
1/2 green bell pepper
1 clove garlic
Have munchkins chop tomato, cucumber and bell pepper up real small. Place everything into blender and puree till brown and milkshake-like.
Oddly, none of the kids liked it. I wonder why?
