The most delicious salad – from Royalton Hotel NYC Gabriel Cruz – Master Chef! Cooking with kids – its healthy and easy!

I was thrilled when I tasted this amazing salad created by Executive Chef Gabriel Cruz – at the Royalton Hotel in NYC. You will love it! And my grandkids loved making it – so easy – of course when you put on great music such as Dancing in My Room – just throw all the yummy ingredients in! The effort goes into getting the ingredients – but Whole Foods or even ordering them on line – makes it easier! This was so delicious. Thank you Gabriel – and remember to call on the Royalton and sample this when you next are in the Big Apple!
