  1. Oh yum. We love salads and even the boys eat them. I think that if you offer a food regularly then the kids will eat it too.

  4. I wouldn't mind making this myself, I like a spicy food and anything with chili. I have made something similar without added the Chilli powder.
    I once use scotch bonnet in a salad, big mistake, no-one could eat it!
