Rainbow salad

What to do with purple carrots?

We had to pick up a few things at the supermarket after school today, and in the fruit and veg department, the boys spotted some purple carrots!

So, the conversation naturally moved to what to do with purple carrots?

After tossing around a few ideas, we thought a Rainbow Salad would be a good idea. Then we had to work out what fruit & vegetables would be in the rainbow salad.

This is what we came up with:

  • Red – tomatoes
  • Orange – “normal” carrots
  • Yellow – yellow capsicum
  • Green – celery
  • Blue – blueberries
  • Indigo – purple carrots
  • Violet – purple cabbage

They also needed to be arranged on a plate in order.

Now, I have no idea how this would taste, but it was certainly a fun activity to keep us occupied on the way home from school!

If anyone knows what you would actually do with purple carrots, please let me know.
