Stuffed Celery Sticks

Clean celery by washing under cold water. Remove any dirt.
Cut each piece of celery crosswise into 4 short pieces.
Fill center of short celery pieces with peanut butter.
Add raisins on top for “ants on a log.”
Cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and put in refrigerator until ready to serve. Serves 8.

Ingredients:

2 celery stalks
Peanut butter
Raisins

 

Salsa Fresca

Salsa should be a team effort. The only item that needs adult attention is the jalapeno and its seeds. For more heat, keep the seeds and chop. Kids can chop the cilantro while mom dices the tomato, onion and peppers. Put everything in the bowl and mix. Serves 4.

Ingredients:

4 ripe tomatoes, seeded and diced
1/4 red onion, minced
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded (optional) and diced
1/2 bunch cilantro leaves, chopped
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
Salt and pepper, freshly ground to taste
