Welcome!

We are two sisters that feed our families almost completely vegetarian. With 5 children aged 2 to 12 years between the two of us, we have had the joy and pain of experimenting. We plan to Blog 365 simple and kid approved meals. Most will be made-from-scratch but we will also share what we do when eating out. It may take more than 365 days to accomplish this but we hope you'll check back often, try our suggestions and give us your feedback.

65. Apple Sesame Broccoli Slaw Salad

This is my oriental adaptation of my apple salad and I don't put it on any bread. Chop everything into a large bowl, whisk together dressing, pour over salad and stir. Hold the chow-mein noodles until a few minutes before serving so they won't get soggy. I like to eat this by itself for a lunch - if you have any suggestions of what to serve with it I would love to hear it! Makes 2 large or 4 small servings. As always my amounts are eyeballed!

2 diced apples (any kind)
3 sliced celery stalks
1 cup halved green grapes
3-4 sliced green scallion onion
1 small can mandarin oranges
2 cups broccoli slaw (pre-made)
1 cup crunchy chow-mein noodles

sesame dressing:
1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 3 teaspoons sugar, honey, or agave
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  • 2-3 dashes ginger powder
