1. The twitter thread on salads from today


?s=20

Iíve got some NEWS for you people about WHY your salads are dull and flavorless. Are you ready for some NEWS???
1. Youíre forgetting to SEASON your ingredients, acting like the DRESSING is all that matters. Cucumbers and tomatoes need SALT and PEPPER. Avocados need CITRUS. Act as if you were going to eat each ingredient individually
Youíre using BORING lettuces. MIX IT THE FUCK UP. Use some arugula, use field greens, use romaine hearts, use frisťe. Mix all your greens together!
3. Donít be afraid to use things with FLAVOR and SPICE! Have you ever heard of RADISHES? JALAPE—OS? Add some damn SPICE in there!
4. HERBS! Why arenít you using herbs? Use whatever herbs you can find! Parsley, cilantro, chervil, nasturtium, basil, and and all of it. STOP NOT USING HERBS
5. FETA CHEESE! What, you donít like feta cheese? Do you not like FLAVOR? Get outta here with that nonsense. Donít be putting cold flavorless shredded mozzarella like youíre a CoCoís. Use flavorful cheese. At room temperature!
6. Letís talk DRESSINGS. You need olive oil, you need vinegar (all types are fine), you need CITRUS, and you need an agent that will HOMOGENIZE THE REST! What do you think Iím going to say now!?
7. HORSERADISH. You donít like horseradish? LEARN TO LIKE IT. You still donít like it? MUSTARD. MINCED GARLIC. A LITTLE BIT OF HONEY. TABASCO! Who gives a shit. Try stuff. Add flavors. Try new things! Use THAI FISH SAUCE!
8. DO NOT BE AFRAID TO PLAY. Raid your fridge. Raid your pantry. Use spices before they go bad. Use veggies you would otherwise throw away. HAVE FUN!
9. Your salad is only going to be as boring as you allow it to be. EXCITING SALADS 2020. THIS IS YOUR YEAR.

END VERY IMPORTANT THREAD

3. I think he is going for sarcastic humor. Some times it works better then others

He is right, IMO, about seasoning ripe tomato & a squirt of lime/lemon on avocado. I don't like feta cheese, but the idea of letting cheese come to room temp is one I will try next big salad day. Which this cold grey day is not a salad day for me.

4. My latest fav is tomato vinaigrette

Still working on the recipe. The last batch I made was almost where I want it to be. Going to make some more for a salad for Sunday dinner.
