Kids salad recipes should appeal to tender palates. In other words, when making salads for kids, simple is best. Use just a few ingredients - three or four is best to start with - and make sure they are ingredients the kids already like. When kids get used to eating salads, make them together. That's a great way to get kids interested in expanding their palates.
