subwaysaladOn my very low-carb diet, that I have been on since January 24, 2013, and have lost 22(+) pounds, I tend, by necessity, to eat a lot of salads, especially for dinner. It is not unusual for me to have salads (albeit always with a meat topping) five nights a week — if not more. The days I don’t have a salad I eat a spiced-to extreme [i.e., hot enough to make a Mexican blanche] curry, loaded with vegetables with a lot of turmeric, and cumin and caraway seeds (that according to the quack on CNN is supposed to be very good for you and there must be a grain of truth to it because Indians having been scoffing down these spices for millennia and are still around in large numbers).

I had never really given much thought to salad preparation. I am not really fussy about food. So the notion of finely chopped salads had never really crossed my mind.

Then I had that Applewood Pulled Pork chopped salad at Subway, in mid-August, on the way back from Storyland. It was a revelation. The chopping sure does spread the flavor around. I watched the young girl use a curved chopper in awe.

I wanted ONE. My birthday was coming up and Deanna always complains that she doesn’t know what to get me. So I checked Amazon.

Found this ‘Mezzaluna‘, when I typed in ‘salad chopper’. Put it, and the bowl, in my Wish List and send it to Deanna. Santa, Easter Bunny or the tooth fairy (and I am not really sure which one of these handles birthday presents) did the rest. I got the very ergonomic and pleasing on the hand Mezzaluna. I have used it about 4 times since — taking into account that we have been eating out quite a bit since my birthday. Love it. Really makes a difference.

I typically use sliced, very hot green pepper and one to two stems of scallions in my salads for ‘spice’. This Mezzaluna really grinds it all up. Then I add some salad dressing, mainly Ranch, and do a bit more rocking. That really does the trick.

Highly recommend it.
