Ever had this experience? You pull the salad stuff out of the fridge and set to chopping it up, but somehow when you get to the lettuce a kind of vegetable inertia sets in. You look out of the window at the gathering gloom, and suddenly it's just too cold for salad. Back into the fridge it goes until spring.
This is how to avoid salad apathy disorder.
Firstly, don't put any lettuce in your salad.
That's it. Don't put any lettuce in your salad. You see, tomatoes, cucumbers, beetroot, all the other salad delights look like proper chunky vegetables, and the suspension of disbelief that goes into any attempt to eat salad survives. Lettuce is just too fragile to be plausible after the clocks go back.
Accidents aren't naughty, making lettuce seasonal again.
