Simple salad plates served with a bowl of dip are always inhaled in our house. This fun food, salad spaceship took minutes to make and of course even less time to eat!

Both my boys have always eaten radish but it’s never been a favourite. I’m a firm believer that tastes change (for all of us not just the mini-chefs) so I keep offering things even if they’re not top pick. This summer both of them suddenly love radishes and actively ask for them in their lunchboxes!?


– Celery (or cucumber)

– Radish (or cucumber/carrot cut thinly)

– Cucumber (or other contrasting coloured veg)

– Tomato (or avocado)

– Carrot (other veg that can be cut effectively)


1. Slice 3 legs from celery and a base from radish.

Salad Spaceship - 1 base (1 of 1)

2. Then balance the radish on the celery. I used a cocktail stick in the back celery baton for better balance.

Salad Spaceship - 2 base complete (1 of 1)

3. Cut circles from the outside of a cucumber for the detail on the “saucer”.

Salad Spaceship - 3 detail (1 of 1)

4. Use half a tomato for the top of the spaceship.

Salad Spaceship - 4 tomato (1 of 1)

5. Then cut carrot (I used a small cookie cutter) for star shaped detail around the edge of the plate.
