Apple Picking Tree Salad

I was looking back on our fun food pictures today and found this Apple Picking Tree Salad that we made over a year ago. We like eating salads with field greens, strawberries, chicken, and blue cheese. However, this is definitely not my boys choice of dinners. Making this salad into a apple tree along with a biscuit basket full of apples (strawberries) is a fun way to dress it up and perfect for Fall! Super easy to make as well!

Apple Picking Tree Salad

Field Greens
Rotisserie Chicken
Blue Cheese
1 Biscuit
Pretzel Sticks

All you do is cut off a large piece of the rotisserie chicken and place it on the plate for the tree trunk. Place the field greens on top to look like leaves. Cut the top off of the biscuit and then cut a circle out of that to make a U shape. Place that on the top for the handle. We sliced a few strawberries and then cut small circles from the slices. We used the tip of a piping bag to make our circles. You could also just cut them with kitchen scissors. We poked the tips of pretzel sticks in the tops to look like stems. Place them on the tree and in the biscuit basket. Cut a couple of leaves from the field greens to look like grass using kitchen scissors. Place on blue cheese in the sky to look like clouds.

Here is my then 4 year old with his Apple Picking Tree Salad…

If you have picky eaters that will not eat salad then you really should give this a try! It worked for me!
