I love sharing and showing hospitality this way, as my husband and I so appreciate the teachers at this school and the effort and time that they put into our kids.
It’s our little way of saying “thank you.” Our sons are in 9th and 7th grade, so there are a lot of teachers who look after and teach our young lads:)
I seem to get stuck for a few months on one tasty salad, making it whenever I’m asked to bring a salad.
I tape the dressing recipe up inside my kitchen cabinet and I keep the ingredients on hand at all times.
Right now my salad for the season is a mandarin orange green salad. But what makes it so delicious is the poppy seed salad dressing that I’ve had in my recipe book for over 15 years. It came from my cousin, Anni. So I pulled it out of the archives and it’s a BIG HIT! Try it and see what you think!
Poppy Seed Dressing
2/3 c oil
2/3 c sugar
Â¼ c cider vinegar
Â¼ c lemon juice
3 T poppy seeds
1 tsp salt
Â¼ c onions, chopped
Mix, shake well before using.
(Salad: greens, mandarin oranges, toasted nuts, green onion, feta cheese)
You can also add chicken!
Do you do anything special for your kid’s teachers?
