Muffin Tin Mondays: Wonky Salad



May has brought us a farmers market full of greens. We filled our market bag up with lettuce and arugula this week. In celebration I thought I would dedicate this muffin tin to crisp lettuce. And with all the salad we have been having I know Blip will be excited about a bit of wonkyness.


Ok, so this one is not in a muffin tin, it is a plate and ramekin combo. I just have a love affair with salads and such in ramekins. They are so cute, crisp, and white...small enough for Blip, but still a nice size for when I want him to dig into a "big bowl" of leafy greens. They are just fun to have around! It is still a fun meal with a compartment, and that ever important creativity!

  • The stars and sticks are cut from red pear. I just used my star cookie cutter on them and sliced the leftover pieces. 
  • Crisp lettuce...it is a salad after all
  • Apple sauce as dressing, yea it sounds weird but Blip loves it! 
  • Dried cranberry's sprinkled on
  • The sticks reminded me of the center of flowers. They are long radishes that have been sliced into sticks. I just made tiny balls from herb goat cheese to stick on top!

    2. Fun lunch. I'll try applesauce as dressing for my picky eater. She doesn't like any salad dressing and won't eat salad greens - she loves applesauce - worth a try - thanks!
