Any decent dinner party menu involves a big green salad. It’s just a fact of life.
It’s just … a fact.
I hope that you do enjoy a big green salad, because if you do, you won’t try to argue with me here. There are people who do enjoy this sort of thing, you know. As a matter of fact, one of my dinner party guests told me he wanted more of this salad instead of dessert. Well, not entirely true – he still wanted dessert, but he said that this salad was so good that he just wanted to keep eating more of it. And this was after dessert was long gone.
If, on the other hand, you don’t enjoy a big green salad, allow me to let you in on a little secret. And it’s not, “adding bacon, because bacon makes everything better.” That’s also a fact, but it’s a fact everyone knows.
Can I get away with telling you avocado makes everything better? Maybe. You likely already know it, fine – but I think we can let that one slide moreso than the bacon statement.
How about this … how about we talk about the magic that happens when basil vinaigrette is poured, generously, over a vat of arugula? Now, this … this might be news to you.
