I hesitate to publish two posts in a row about salad, considering the ubiquitous cliche about vegetarians, but the truth is that I rarely make or eat salads.
When dining out, I find more and more places seem to be padding their salads out with meat–or at the very least, cheese or mayo. And at home, when warmer weather comes around I’m much more likely to reach for a burger, wrap or mezze with Turkish bread than the salad bowl.
But one of the great things about this month is the way it encourages thinking about food, and thinking about it in different ways. I’ve been encouraged and inspired already by the endless ways to combine and dress fruit, vegetables, nuts, grains, and seeds. You guys rock.
