Interested in growing a fun, delicious salad with ingredients that students can grow themselves and will actually like? Check out The Bronx Salad Toolkit for Schools, created by Bronx Health REACH and Grow to Learn NYC, to learn how to make the salad in your school. The Bronx Salad, which is currently being offered at a number of Bronx restaurants, includes mixed greens, plantain chips, avocado, mango and corn, among other ingredients showcasing the diverse cultures and palates that exist in the Bronx.
