“What do you do with bits and pieces of fruits and cheese in your fridge drawers? You make great salads of course ! I love creating meals from scratch using whatever is on hand and blending different textures and flavors; I rarely measure anything except when baking because then kitchen math is necessary for successful results :-) I like bosc pears best, but any firm juicy pear will be fine; do not use iceberg lettuce: it is tasteless and watery. Butter lettuce, oak leaf and frisee are a nice mix, as are romaine and endive.”

  9. gently toss salad - by doing this you mix ingredients little at a time and don't "shock" them all at once.
  10. make dressing in a separate bowl or squeeze bottle and add half, see how much it covers the salad and then add the rest if you wish.
