Tomatoes are not often a child’s favorite food. Here’s a great summer salad with a little touch of sun-kissed sweetness that may win over a hesitant child. To further gain kid approval, we also recommend seeding the tomatoes, which removes the slippery texture. If your child is OK with the seeds, leave them in—they have lots of nutrients.
1 cup fresh tomatoes, seeded and cut into bite-sized pieces
1 cup cantaloupe, seeded and cut into bite-sized pieces
1/4 cup olive oil
1 Tbsp lime or lemon juice
1 Tbsp brown sugar
Dash of salt
Place tomato and cantaloupe in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Just before serving, pour the dressing over tomato and melon and toss to coat.
