Confession: I’m really not a fan of salads.
I don’t have any issues with vegetables in general … In fact, I would go so far as to say that most veggies are welcome in my kitchen (green beans being the only nasty, gag-worthy exception).
I like to cook with veggies, and I like to add them to main dishes just for fun. There are so many tasty plant foods to be experimented with, and I love the colors and textures they bring to the table.
But salad? Just cold, raw, plain salad? Me no likey.
I’ve tried different dressings, and no dressing at all. I’ve tried tossing in herbs and onions and all manner of tasty additives, like garlic and chicken and beans, but to no avail.
Am I strange to like all the components of salad, but not the salad itself?
I know I should eat lots of raw leafy greens. And I feel good after eating them, so I know my body appreciates the green goodness. So why can’t I just enjoy eating what I know my body craves?
Any of my cooking savvy friends out there have any salad-saving suggestions?
