My mom is always trying to get us to eat more greens and will go to great lengths to do so (if you've met my mom and seen her in action--you know exactly what I'm talking about).
She's tried everything--using pretty plates, decorating with colorful fruit, hiding them in a casserole, etc. And when those tactics don't work, she's not opposed to bribery, threats, or out-right lies--like the time she told us we were having hotdogs (yeah, right!), which turned out to be made of carrots. Like we really thought she'd let a hotdog in our house.
Well, lies & tricks be gone! Ever since she came up with this awesome recipe, she no longer has to convince us to eat our greens. I crave this salad and always ask for it when I'm home from college. My mom makes it in big batches and serves it several times a week. I like an extra splash of lemon/lime on mine.
