    Both my kids have eaten salads since we started solids. But they don't get dressings on theirs.

    Today they had an Asian salad with bok choy, carrot, wombok, capsicum, bean sprouts, shallots, fresh coriander and mint.

    Greek, bean, Caesar, pasta, rice and Asian salads are popular. Last week we had a butter bean salad with grilled asparagus and crumbled goats cheese.

    He's not a fan. I usually put a very small portion on his plate focusing on stuff he does eat like cucumber, olives, capsicum, etc.

    My 4 yr old refuses anything but cucumber.

    My 2yr old will try anything. He loves cucumber & tomato as a side. Last week I gave him some of our tomato, lettuce, cucumber & carrot salad (with dressing) and he liked it!
    So for him it was just feed raw veggies and then sneak in the dressing later

    We have always fed dd salad - from the time she started solids because we did blw and we eat salads 5-6 nights per week. So she started with all the items separately and then we went from there. We don't use dressing though as I feel it defeats the healthiness (apart from Asian crunchy noodle salad) but I know heaps of people only like a dressed salad so maybe try some?

    Or Could u gradually add the items to his menu by giving say lettuce on a sandwich for lunch with cherry tomato on the side, or celery and capsicum strips with a dip for afternoon tea etc. So that they become normalised.

    Last suggestion could you get him to help prepare it (give him plastic/butter knife to cut cheese, cucumber - let him toss it or dress it) so he is excited to eat the fruits of his labour.

    Oh and we do just a normal garden salad mostly: iceberg lettuce, spinach, celery, carrot, avocado, terra cheese, snow peas, green beans, cherry tomato, radish, spring onion or red onion, capsicum, sprouts, & hard boiled egg sometimes we put crunchy noodles or cashews on top.

    My kids will eat individual items in a bento box type container but as soon as I toss them together they refuse so I just have them all individually arranged on a plate. I remember being the same until I was about 8-9 years old

    DS loves salad dressing and I think they are quite healthy! I use good quality extra virgin olive oil or flaxseed oil or walnut oil with a big squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a splash of apple cider vinegar or I have a caramalised balsamic vinegar addiction and add that to just about everything!

    Neither of my kids will eat salad. Really hard as we both eat lots of salads, but now gravitate to veg more since they came along.
    I keep trying by putting nuts on their plates, but they invariably get left.

    I cut things up nice and small and also cut up some tinned pears and mix it through as well...a little bit of sweetness helps
