Student Chooses Salad Du Jour: Day 2
Yesterday's "Student Salad Du Jour" was a success. Everyone's feedback has been positive and we're excited to see how this new way of getting our students more involved in their cafeteria choices and rewarding them for their outstanding work in the classroom with positive attention continues to grow.We'll share more stories and pictures aas they come in.
Today's Student Salad Du Jour was created by Jaquan S. of Promise Academy's 8th grade. Jaquan requested a Mango Salad with Grilled Shrimp for himself and his peers. This is a delicious recipe and we are always thrilled to highlight healthy ingredients like mango and shrimp! Mango is a tropical fruit which means it's not part of our normal focus on locally-grown produce here at HCZ, but for this special occassion we're making an exception! Like many fruits, mango is high in fiber and packed with antioxidants like Vitamins A, C, and E. It can be eaten green or you can eat it when it is ripe and sweet and orange. That's how we enjoyed it in our salad. It's a prefect balance to the savory shrimp and the crisp lettuce.
Thank you for sharing!
