Salad Dressings

This section was initially titled "salads," but most salad recipes unfortunately call for an abundance of budget unfriendly ingredients or items that are not generally available in the same season here in Georgia. Luckily, all you need is in your garden! Pick your greens (spinach, lettuce, arugulga, etc.), then chop up whatever other fresh vegetables are ready for harvest, and add a simple dressing. Have one group of students tear greens into bite-sized pieces and another group or two chopping veggies. Mix up salad dressing in a mason jar and let students pass it around the class, shaking to mix. Of course, you can always pick up a bottle of salad dressing from the grocery store, but making your own is quick, cheap, and will not only impress students, but teach them a great life skill.
