    I sure wish I loved salad… but can’t seem to like it unless it’s slathered in dressing and has main-meal elements like eggs, tuna, cheese, and bacon. But I like the idea of cutting the lettuce really small. I’m about to make a salad now (got a bunch of Romaine in my surprise produce basket yesterday), and want to try that tip! Thanks!
