Steaking a Claim in Salad Lunch

April  9, 2015

Every week we take a peek inside the lunches of the luckiest kids in Brooklyn. Read on, suppress your jealousy, and get a little brown bag inspiration.

My kids like salad, but a container full of greens isn't going to get them through the day. This is why the composed salad was invented. Or maybe it was created to clean out the fridge. Either way, it's a win-win. We had leftover steak, which I cut into little cubes to top a kale and cucumber salad, which I then tossed with garlic dressing. To freshen up after this pungent feast: caramels and clementines.

These look fabulous but what kid would EVER eat like this!! Although my girl has a more advanced palate than most, she would NEVER eat half of these things! What's your secret??

Hi Becca, thanks for your note. Our kids seem to be pretty adventurous -- I did write this post about our approach, which isn't for everyone: https://food52.com/blog/13177-parenting-lunchmaking-and-hoping-your-kids-will-love-food
