Heard that before? You have if you watch Duck Dynasty! But what it really says is “Shoot Them”! And if you eat a lot of salads, you need to “shoot them, also”. In other words, clean the greens. Even if the bag says, “pre-washed”, clean anyway. It makes for a crisper lettuce, and a better flavored salad. If I am at home, i like to fill my “salad shooter” with ice water – submerge the insert full of lettuce, whether it be iceberg, field greens, butter lettuce (if you have never eaten butter lettuce, it is a must to try) romaine, or whatever I have on hand, just for a few seconds to get them icy cold, and lift, drain, pour out water, and spin! it is amazing how much water this thing gets off the lettuce. And it sure makes it crisp up and bring out great flavors.
Guess what the next MARCH MADNESS giveaway is?? You got it….. a brand new, OXO Good Grips Salad Spinner (I want this…mine is the old fashioned with the pull cord – still works great, though).
To be entered to win, just shout out if you will be serving Deviled Eggs with your Easter Fair this month! We always serve them (with one particular person making them each time). AND include – do you like yours with sweet pickles or do you prefer dill? Or no pickles at all? I have a recipe that calls for adding Pulled Pork to it – I will be making this one for the family to try at one of our gatherings. Sounds yummy!
