Newfoundlanders and Labradorians love to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day – green clothes, green food, green everything! In your KES Clubs, as part of this week’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations you can be festive too. Decorate your Club, serve healthy “Irish” breakfast foods or simply “go green”! Try this Very Green St. Patrick’s Day Fruit Salad at your KES Club this week, they’ll love it!
- Green pear
- Green grapes
- Green Apples
Wash all fruit. Peel the kiwis and slice into small pieces. Remove all grapes from stem. Cut the pears and apples into chunks. To prevent the apples from browning, you may want to soak the apples in apple juice or lemon juice before adding to the fruit salad. Mix all fruit in a large bowl and divide fruit salad in clear plastic cups so that green is visible to the children.
