I hate having to dress my own salad. I’m just no good at it. Sure, anyone can just “pour dressing on a salad”. It’s distribution and proper mixing where I fall short. In this instance, I was blessed with a plastic container, which greatly increases my likelihood of achieving some semblance of an evenly dressed salad. But put me in a buffet line, and I‘m hopeless. You’re telling me I have to dress a small portion of salad on my flat plate without getting runoff vinaigrette all over my manicotti?
And somehow, all the dressing manages to accumulate onto one piece of cucumber, so I’m forced to rub that cucumber all over the naked greens, painting them with dressing, like I’m some sort of big fat idiot.
