Oregon Harvest for Schools: Recipe Rendezvous

Incorporating new foods into students’ palates can be a daunting task. Providing a creative way for students to introduce themselves to vegetables and can create a greater likelihood of acceptance. Students work collectively to create the best tasting salad and dressing. After their salad is created, have groups create a recipe for a salad dressing and record that recipe. Discuss the process with the students — did they use all ingredients, what factors influenced their decision to use or not use an ingredient, etc.
