Want to make an awesome looking salad with some minimal cooking skills? This is a great to get your kids to help with. They can do the stacking and you do the cutting.

The trick is get all the pieces the same size. Okay, that's probably impossible. Just get them close to the same size and it will work out. A good sturdy cutting board and a sharp knife will help a lot.

To start, cut the kiwis. These are likely to be the most challenging because they are small to begin with and can be a bit slippery. We found it was easier to cut them into long strips first, then turn the strips sideways and cut them into cubes. The optimal size will be between 3/4" up to 1-1/4" depending on your kiwis, your mood and how much time you want to spend.

When cutting the watermelon and feta, use the kiwi as a size guide. Again the key is uniform size cubes, so take your time here and will pay off later during assembly.

When constructing your finished product make sure to have fun! If you relax and enjoy the process the result come out best.
