For the longest time I’ve used my shallow white soup bowls for salads. I think that I have been using the wrong bowls for a long time! (Perhaps that explains my distaste for salads this year?) BECAUSE… I’ve started to use a big glass mixing bowl for salads and suddenly I like them again!? I am weird, I know.
I think it’s something about the combination of deeper sides, volume inside the bowl, and the way the ingredients fall back down that makes for a better salad eating experience!
Note my hand for scale!
The first salad I enjoyed in this big ole bowl you have already seen. It had arugula, a white wine and Dijon dressing, feta, slivered almonds, and sardines.
Second on the list was leftover Cook Smarts cod and pearled couscous. (Plus more arugula and that delicious butter sauce on top!) I heated up this fish, so this was more like a grain bowl! : )
And lastly, greens with tuna and sardine salad, raisins, almonds, and a lemony white wine dressing.
Do you have a dedicated salad bowl or a favorite at-home salad eating trick? Let me know!
