bread bowl for saladI have not always been a salad lover, though I really enjoy fruits and vegetables.  Growing up in Chicago, everything was a casserole.  As a child, I thought that the salad was just an extension of casserole, a dry, less then exciting, casserole.  Clean out the fridge – let’s make a casserole OR salad, uugh!
 
It wasn’t until that I became a mom, that I decided that I would turn around my detest of the salad in order to spare my daughter from the same pre-adulthood prejudice. 
 
On my quest to embrace the salad, I discovered that the salad is SO much more than grazing for greens on a plate.
