Tasting in the Garden: Leafy Greens

The kids were so excited to harvest and taste the greens they’ve been growing in the garden. First, they learned how to identify the different leafy greens and pick the leaves (without ripping the whole plant out of the ground haha)!

Then, they washed their harvest and dipped it in our dill dressing. The kids LOVED the dill dressing – Thank you so much to Teresa with Schoolyard Sprouts for making enough dressing for every class to taste!

Many of the kids requested the recipe – which made me think that we may need to include that as a lesson next season as well. Until then, here is the combination to make the infamous dill dressing at home:

Dill Dressing

2 parts Mayonnaise to 1 part Sour Cream or Plain Yogurt

Fresh Dill, Lemon Juice, Salt, Pepper to taste
