The whole salad-for-dinner concept and I have recently become friends again. You see, back in college I thought that a great way to counteract the over consumption of cheap beer and late night pizza binges would be to eat salads every. single. night. for dinner. So, every single night I would make a large meal sized salad with lots of different meats and veggies. And no matter how many different varieties I ate they all started tasting the same. To make matters worse, the fact that I ate a salad for dinner didn’t really counteract those late night nacho runs to my sorority’s industrial sized (and stocked) kitchen. So after college, just as I never thought I would eat another nacho again, I couldn’t fathom even one bite of a salad for dinner. Besides, I was now poor and eggs and PB&J became my new diet. As the years went by I (unfortunately very quickly) rediscovered my taste for nachos and more recently started to get back in to eating salad as my main meal again. Just not every single night! I don’t know if it’s the Chop’t that opened underneath my office or my more frequent trips to the farmer’s market giving me access to fresh greens but I am totally back into salads. And now that salads are back, my creative juices are flowing again and boy do I have a salad for you! This Green Goddess Salmon salad certainly puts all those collegiate salads to shame!
