Fun Salad Snail

Salad Snail

I was making pesto yesterday (coriander/cilantro on this occasion) and it looked just like a mossy patch in the garden (a tasty looking one of course!) and this made me think of snails.

So here’s my fun food, salad snail cruising along on my “mossy” pesto. The boys loved her!

Method

1. I put down a smear of pesto (made me feel very “chefy” !!).

3. Then I cut the bottom off a small tomato and put it at the front.

4. Before adding a thick slice of cucumber with the bottom levelled off so it didn’t roll.

5. I made little incisions in the top of the tomato and inserted celery “antennae’.

6. So simple, it’s already finished.
