Ms. Conn's Class Gardens and Cooks

Today Ms. Conn's 5th graders worked in the 5th grade bed and cooked. Three kids made trellises for the Prince Albert Peas and another one watered.  We saw two small pea pods and many blossoms.

Other students made the Harry's Berries Strawberry Salad. They loved it!

 They used some of the tennis ball lettuce from the 5th grade bed. We reviewed that 2 t. (teaspoons) equal 1 T. (tablespoon) We omitted the nuts in the recipe due to potential allergies.

Harry's Berries Strawberry Salad

Ingredients for 4 large servings (we used one strawberry per child and some small bites of lettuce):
lettuce (baby lettuce or other)

1 pint strawberries
1/4 c. toasted pecans chopped
1/4 c. toasted almonds sliced
1 T. strawberry preserves
1 T. red wine vinegar
1/4 t. kosher salt
1/8 t. black pepper
2 T. olive oil

Wash lettuce and strawberries. Tear lettuce in small pieces. Cut top off of strawberries and cut them into four pieces. Mix dressing ingredients in separate container and wisk together. If using nuts, toast in dry skillet over medium heat until light brown. Mix salad ingredients together and add dressing. The full recipe makes four servings. *

*We used 1 pint of berries for 22 individual servings.
