Here’s a way to inspire the kids at the table eat every last bite of salad: tell them the ingredients for this one are what Peter Rabbit took from Mr. McGregor’s garden, then encourage them to use their fingers to dip the veggies in a homemade Thousand Island dressing.
1. To make Dressing: Place tofu in bowl of food processor, and purée 2 minutes, or until smooth. Transfer to bowl, and stir in remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
2. To make Salad: Peel each cucumber into wide strips with vegetable peeler until you reach seed core, turning cucumber between each stroke of peeler to keep strips same width. Discard core. Wrap 3 or 4 strips together to make 3-inch-diameter rings. Set rings on serving plates, and fill with lettuce leaves and green beans as if filling a vase.
3. Divide Dressing into 8 small bowls or ramekins, and place next to Salads on plates. Arrange carrots and radishes around edges of plates.
