Georgia Grown: Marinated Vegetable Salad
Do your kids know more about apps than apples? Could they pick a rutabaga out of a lineup?
Probably not, which is where the "Georgia Grown Test Kitchen" program comes in.
It takes the "farm to table" movement a little further-- as in "farm to school."
Ten schools across the state will take part during the upcoming school year.
The goals are to teach kids about where their food comes, and maybe inspire them to eat healthier foods.
Just because the recipes are served in schools doesn’t mean you can’t try them at home. Here’s a recipe for Georgia Grown’s marinated vegetable salad.
