Children can be a little salad-shy, but we’ve got the croutons to convince them. Try slices of our Parisian baguettine topped with a mixture of goat cheese and cream, heated in the oven, and then drizzled with a little honey. The rest of the meal is styled for the season: pre-cooked beets sautéed in vinegar for tanginess, pears for sweetness and pecans for nutty crunch. Dress it with balsamic and it’s ready—in a mere 10 minutes from start to seating.

Sauté the beets
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Medium-dice the beets. In a large pan, heat 2 tbsp butter on medium-high. Sauté the beets, 4 to 6 min., until golden brown. Add ½ the vinegar and sauté, 1 to 2 min., until mostly evaporated; season with S&P. Remove from the heat to cool slightly.
