Better Home Cooking Basics: #7 Dress Your Salad from the Outside
Whether you've made salad dressing from scratch or you just unscrewed the cap & are ready to dress you salad - dress your salad from the outside. Don't dump the dressing all in the middle & wonder why you have salad dressing soup. Instead, start light. Drizzle a ring of dressing around the outside perimeter of your salad where it touches the bowl & then toss inward using your hands, tongs, a fork & spoon - whatever you've got. Your salad will be more evenly dressed & you might even use less dressing, but only because you wanted to.
