When you feed them the salad, try to make it presentable, an eye-candy, by adding some brightly color fruits and veggies. This way it will stimulate the appetite. Do this with hatchlings (if you had any) on their day off from eating bugs to try them to get use the site and smell of veggies and fruits, so they will eat them as adults. You can try starving the young turtles tiny bit to get them interested in salad. I find they are particularly fond of winter squashes if I microwave them or boil them a little to bring out the delicious nutty aroma. Mix the salad up really well so they will eat other veggies also, not just the ones they like. You can achieve this buy cutting the veggies and fruits into small pieces. You can grate the hard veggies and pulse the beans and leafy greens in the food processor.
