Friday Food: All Green Vegetables Recipe

As a mom, I find it especially challenging to get my daughter to eat her vegetables – especially those of the green variety. There are certain greens she will eat like peas and asparagus, so I try to focus on those when I plan my meals. I recently came across this interesting recipe that incorporates fennel, asparagus, cucumbers, and avocados along with some mint, coriander and olive oil to create a delicious new way to enjoy veggies. Perfect for spring, and even the pickiest of eaters in your life. Enjoy!
