February’s Salad Days held at SES
The second of six monthly Salad Days events was held Wednesday at the Sidney Elementary School.

The event is once a month during lunchtimes and features a healthy salad prepared and served by elementary students. Different groups of students participate each month, preparing and serving the salad.

February’s choice was coleslaw with cabbage, black beans, raisins, sesame seeds, and New York maple syrup.

This year has been designated the International Year of Pulses by the UN Food and Agriculture Association. In conjunction with that, Sidney’s Salad Days will feature dishes that incorporate pulses, such as chickpeas, lentils, and black beans; grains such as quinoa and sorghum; as well as a variety of fruits and vegetables.

The monthly event is a collaboration of Sidney food services, the Green Thumb Growers Guild, and Cornell Cooperative Extension.

The remaining dates are below:
  • March 16: Quinoa tabouli salad with tomatoes, onions, grated carrots, parsley, and mint.
  • April 20: Lentil salad with, kale, celery, chopped onions, cranberries, and apple cider.
  • May 18: Sorghum salad with avocado, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, green peppers, and fresh pineapple slices.
  • June 15: Fruit salad featuring strawberries, apples, chia seeds, yogurt, and New York honey.
