      I am so glad to hear that, Lucasmom! Any time we can get veggies into our kids, I figure that's big points for Mom, lol! I also tried a wonderful salad recipe using kale instead of lettuce. Because kale is tougher than lettuce, you marinate it in the dressing. You have to massage the dressing into the kale with your hands. Then you add lots of goodies - it was another hit! Then, I tried making kale chips in my dehydrator - no good. Only I liked it.... live and learn. Thanks for visiting!
