One of my favorite things to get when Ryan and I go to a local sushi place is, no not the spicy tuna roll, although that is up on the list, but the salad. Funny huh?

I find myself taking extra garnishes or even my finger and slurping up whatever is left over on the salad plate. It might not be the most lady like thing to do but oh well what’s a girl to do?

It works well over any salad greens but I prefer it if the mixture of salad greens has a bit of cabbage in it. And if you find a little left over after your salad is done, don’t be afraid to dip your finger. I won’t judge.
