The iceberg lettuce crashes with relish between the teeth, the spicy dressing slides flatteringly across the tongue, the roasted walnuts explosively release their aroma of roasting, orange pieces make the taste buds shiver at the first touch ... A bacchanal is happening in your mouth, while eating salad!
Salad is one of the dishes that have much more potential than is often assumed. Most people consider it a mere supplement.
But it offers sensational flavors, and can easily be complemented with warm elements like grilled cheese or toasted bread (or chicken filet if you are not a strict vegetarian). It could therefore be an important part of everyday nutrition. It’s quick to make and it's hard to make it go wrong, for a dressing can almost always be "readjusted."
