Homemade Salad Dressing and Veggie Parfaits

Here's what you will need to make it:

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons canola oil

  • 3 tablespoons red vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh basil

  • 1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

  • dash of salt and pepper

  • chopped celery

  • chopped carrots

  • chopped cucumber

  • cherry tomatoes

  • mixing bowl

  • fork

  • clear plastic cup

Here's what you have to do:

1. Parfaits are layered desserts. Salad parfaits are tasty, colorful snacks you can eat anytime.

2. Be sure to wash your hands and check with a grown-up before you begin.

3. Pour 2 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 1/2 tablespoons of canola oil into a mixing bowl.

4. Slowly dribble 3 tablespoons of red vinegar into the oil and mix with a fork.

5. Add 1 teaspoon of honey.

6. Add 1/4 teaspoon of chopped, fresh basil and 1/4 teaspoon of chopped fresh thyme. You can use dried basil and thyme, but add a bit more because dried herbs don't have as strong a flavor as fresh herbs.

7. Add a dash of salt and pepper. Use your homemade dressing to dress a yummy veggie parfait, or a regular salad.

8. To make a veggie parfait, peel and wash some vegetables like celery, carrots, cucumber, and tomato. Then chop them into small pieces. Be sure to check with a grown-up before you do this.

9. Put a layer of each vegetable into a clear cup.

10. Pour some of your homemade dressing over the vegetables to add some punch to the crunch.
