"Children seem to be fascinated by bugs. So during a spring visit, my great-nieces and I had fun making fresh fruit salads that looked like garden insects," says Sherry Masters, Cincinnati, Ohio. Mandy Paige-Wrischnik assembled this lovely ladybug while her sister made a cute caterpillar.
- 2 lettuce or kale leaves
- 1 medium Red Delicious apple, quartered
- 2 teaspoons creamy peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons raisins
- 5 seedless red grapes
- Place lettuce leaves on two salad plates. Arrange two apple quarters, peel side up, on the lettuce. Use dab of peanut butter to place raisins in the space between apple quarters. Place one grape at the stem end of apple for head. For legs, cut the remaining grapes lengthwise into four pieces; place three on each side of ladybugs. Place small dabs of peanut butter on remaining raisins; gently press onto apples for spots. Yield: 2 servings.
