The Evolution of Salad
When I'm feeling unwell or off-balance, I crave cold, raw, colorful foods. During a recent low, I realized I hadn't been eating well. That weekend I committed myself to making richly colored dishes and eating at least one meal from the garden each day. (Needed: 101 ways to cook Zucchini) It struck me last night as I did my nightly short-order salad-chef routine, how our salad fixings of choice are age-appropriate. :-) In a recent conversation someone extolled the virtues of a food processor, but to be honest, I really love chopping vegetables with my favorite knife. Simple pleasures.
