“You have a salad spinner!” Have you seen these? You wash the lettuce, put it in a bowl with a lid, push the button and it spins the water out. It’s amazing.

I was in Minnesota with a friend this summer when her Mom was showing off in the kitchen with her spinner. I don’t know what she’ll do next….maybe an automatic chopping device.

Out of that salad spinner came an amazing salad.  I actually forgot which restaurant in St. Louis she said she adapted it from, I call it my St. Louis via St. Paul via Phoenix Salad.

St. Louis via St. Paul via Phoenix Salad


3 romain lettuce hearts
1/4 head of iceberg lettuce
10 oz. can of artichoke hearts drained (not pickled)
4 oz. jar of diced pimentos drained (not seasoned)
10 oz. can of hearts of palm drained
1/2 large red onion
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

1/3 cup Wishbone Italian, 1/2 cup Wishbone Ceasar Mixed

Wash it, chop it, mix it in and enjoy.

Oh, and one more little tip.  If you mix the salad dressing in the hearts of palm jar, it makes it easy to store.
