This fun-to-eat dish was inspired by the Tuscan bread salad called panzanella and is a great way to get kids to eat fresh vegetables. For little kids: Let them help stir the batter and pluck the leaves off the stems of the herbs. For big kids: Let them measure and stir the ingredients for the popovers and peel and chop the vegetables for the salad.

Ingredients

Popovers: 
Summer Salad:

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin generously with baking spray; set aside.

For the popovers: Whisk the milk, flour, eggs, vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl until combined. Drizzle in the melted butter while whisking until combined, then let the batter stand for 5 minutes. Whisk in the baking powder, then divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups (a scant 1/4 cup each). Bake until puffed and browned around the edges, 20 to 25 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through.

For the salad: While the popovers are baking, toss the tomatoes, mozzarella, cucumbers and basil in a medium bowl. Whisk the oil, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper in a measuring cup; add to the tomato mixture and toss to coat. Cover the bowl and refrigerate.

To assemble: When the popovers are done, turn them out of the pan, using a small spatula if necessary. Place 2 popovers on each of six serving plates and top each with 1/2 cup of the tomato mixture. Serve immediately.

Never leave a child unattended in the kitchen. Limit the child to tasks that are safe and age-appropriate.
