Creative SaladChef Tony Galzin

I’ll do a healthy garden salad.
I want to blanch and then shock the green beans and broccoli.  I’ll talk about why chefs do this, why it keeps the veggies green, and how it keeps the most nutrients in the veggies.
Then we’ll shave raw squash, and cut cucumbers, tomatoes, and kale to toss with the blanched veggies.
I’ll show the kids how to make a basic vinaigrette with olive oil and vinegar, and we’ll dress the salad and talk about other things they could add in at home.
