Labor Day Picnic Salad Recipes

fruit salad

Your Labor Day picnic or family BBQ just isn’t complete without a tasty array of awesome treats. Okay, so the sweets may be favorites with the kids. But, they aren’t the only buffet items on your menu. Right? Even though it’s tempting to prepare a bevy of burgers, hotdogs, cookies, cupcakes and other not-so-healthy items, you may also need a salad (or two). The good news is, your kids can easily help you to prep these side dishes. Check out a few fun salad ideas that are also family friendly. The kids can help wash the veggies, pull some of them apart, measure and mix!

Cucumber Salad

This tangy dish is different than a traditional salad. Way different. Slice a few cucumbers thinly. Tweens and teens can do this step for you. Mix two tablespoons of plain low-fat yogurt, two tablespoons of vinegar and the juice of half a lemon (your child can squeeze the lemon, just make sure to strain out the seeds) with the cucumbers. Add a sliced red onion and a hefty pinch of dill (chop the fresh stuff). Mix it thoroughly and chill before serving.

Fruit Salad

No, this isn’t entirely made from fruit. Instead, toss your favorite lettuce, a few tomatoes, green peppers and whatever else your family enjoys in a salad with berries. Serve up a fig on top, slice strawberries or add in blueberries and raspberries. Top the salad with a berry-rific dressing, such as a raspberry vinaigrette.

Grilled Peaches

You already have the grill going. So, you might as well put on a few peaches. Grill sliced peaches and then top a fresh green salad with them.
