I get sick and tired of 'fad' foods also.

But right now we have a whole lot of white global warming sticking to our roads and the house is bone chilling cold.

The idea of a salad of delicate greens with a subtle dressing that would include a trace, just a tad, of a nice balsamic vinegar dressing is more than I can imagine.

So as I am getting ready to bundle myself up to go out and salt our long driveway I will keep that mache and rocket salad in mind (and long for some fiddlehead ferns if I can find them, usually here we cannot).

With the fervent hope and prayer that Spring is on the way.

another one in favor of the fad/"bad" 3.
made the best salad twice over the last couple of weeks.
spinach with tons of other stuff in there.
cilantro, our DD hates the stuff, mostly says it tastes like soap which is a very common assessment around these parts. I myself love the stuff.
and even grow it but it has the shortest growing season ever.
rocket or arugula I also adore, spicy and pepper taste to me.

in my way of thinking, the newest buzz word in the cooking world that I've noticed is fennel. I can't stand the stuff and can not believe how many people use it in their recipes. ick...............
