I think I'm blogging about a meal...

Monday, August 19, 2013

After several envious trips to Subway, watching them perfectly dice up my salad, I decided it was high time to splurge on a kitchen purchase:

It's a salad chopper - complete with sturdy bowl and double slicer. Every time I watch the employees at Subway pile my veggies high and then dice it up in a manner of seconds. And every time I think, "that would cut my prep time in half." Plus I'm not too hot with the knife. I'm a loud, sloppy chopper.

Today was my test run and it was wonderful. I piled in my veggies - argula, kale, iceberg lettuce, peppers, onions, and cucumbers - and added some roasted chicken and goat cheese:

Then I ran the dicer through my meal and had everything chopped and mixed:

It was delicious and topped off with some Walden Farms dressing (not that you need to know that). But the best part is that it took me less than five minutes to make the entire thing, which I sat on top of my food scale to weigh by add in.

    So very awesome! Where did you get a salad chopper? Those subway salads have been my go to meal this month and at $7 a pop I'm pretty sure the salad chopper would pay for it self in no time.

The salad look yummy, thanks for sharing the pics and the info!

    since I track my food by ingredient.. I would put the bowl on the scale zero it then add an item noting weight for tracking, zero again add next .... etc. then use the gadget to chop it all together. It does sound like a nifty gadget. I will have to keep my eye out for it next time I am browsing in kitchen wares.
Thanks for the heads up... I had never seen or heard of that gadget.

    I have yet to order a salad at Subway... something I will have to do next time I'm on the road. Where did you get that nifty looking gadget? I'm pretty impressed that you weighed your salad! That wouldn't even have entered my mind lol.
