Salads: While I've moved beyond my abhorrence of "lettuce juice", the salad category for a bachelor is not a popular one -- far too healthy. In fact my system can only assimilate greens about once a month, or so. However, on that special occasion where salad is called for, I take a very pragmatic approach. Every grocery store now carries an assortment of pre-packaged salads, which, in my opinion is the only kind of salad to buy. I have no idea what the difference between lettuce varieties is, so this simplifies the process a great deal. First, select a package of salad, with dressing and croutons included. I like the Caesar, personally. Name brand is irrelevant, just try to choose a package with lettuce that has the fewest brown edges. You can't avoid brown edges altogether in packaged salads, so don't even try. Preparation and presentation are blended seamlessly in this particular recipe. Once at home, take the bag of salad and cut a thin strip from the top of the bag. Be careful not to tear the bag completely open. Remove the salad dressing and croutons, but leave the lettuce in the bag. Then, open the croutons and salad dressing and dump them back into the bag where the salad remains. Pinch the top of the bag together and roll it over once or twice to make sure there is a tight seal. Shake vigorously. Grab a fork (if you have guests, otherwise there's no need) and the freshly tossed salad can be eaten straight from the bag.
