ABC Salad Toss

Getting kids to eat their veggies, fruit and protein is as easy as ABC—that's apples, bananas and cheese. This is a slightly sweet salad that appeals to kids' taste buds while still delivering lots of healthy benefits. —Christine Maddux, Council Bluffs, Iowa

    Excellent salad! We were looking for something to use up apples in and decided to try this. We had our doubts about the banana, but happily we found it works. We used red grapes which made this a very colorful salad. Loved the crunch and the combination of sweet flavors. Came together very quickly and chilled in the fridge before serving. Will make this often!
