The Big Salad

Julie: Please come, Elaine.

Elaine: No, no. How about if you bring me back something?

George: Sure, all right, what do you want?

Elaine: Um, hum, I don’t know.. . . A big salad?

George: What big salad? I’m going to the coffee shop.

Elaine: They have big salads.

George: I’ve never seen a big salad.

Elaine: They have a big salad.

George: Is that what I ask for? The BIG salad?

Elaine: It’s okay, you don’t…

George: No, no, Hey I’ll get it. What’s in the BIG salad?

Jerry: Big lettuce, big carrots, tomatoes like volleyballs.

George: You know, if it was a regular salad, I wouldn’t have said anything. But you had to have the BIIIIIG salad!

    Hilarious! I love the play-by-play with the photos. And that salad looks divine. The sesame seeds are the pièce de résistance… Nicely done, Perlow!

    commending your efforts on being healthy, and completely enjoying food. just made a similar salad using raw snow peas as a base and adding julienned asian pair, roast beets, dried apricots and cranberries and tons of other stuff. but the point is to pack in that fiber which fills the stomach, sates appetite and balances your glycemic index. I think what actually makes it easier for foodies to eat healthy is that we still love to cook, still love to eat, and we can create delicious meals purely based on food knowledge and experience, and not using some corny low-fat points-based diet cookbook found in the clearance rack at B&N.
