Since the lettuce is on the bottom, kids won’t even realize this is a salad until they start eating!

Kiddie Cobb


2 cups chopped red-leaf lettuce
1 cup diced roast turkey, about 1/3 pound (use one thick slice from the deli)
1 ripe avocado, cut into chunks
1/2 cup halved red grapes
1/3 cup chickpeas
2 reduced-fat cheddar cheese sticks, cubed
Honey-mustard salad dressing


Place lettuce on a serving platter. Line each of the remaining ingredients diagonally on top of lettuce, as shown, starting with turkey in the center. Serve with the dressing on the side.
