I am so sick of my school calling "2 hour delays". Don't get my wrong, they're definitely needed at times, just NOT the way that they do them. Why can't we be like every other fricking college in the area, that has a "10 AM start"? No, no. Instead, I get out like an hour and a half later than I usually would, thereby making me have to go straight to work on Tuesdays. With no food, mind you, because I only have 5 minutes in between classes, and barely enough time to get to work on time.
Someone needs to change this. I might go crazy before winter is over.

Niçoise salad is delicious. Heh, the iPhone has all the foreign language characters. Most of the time I'm still too lazy to take the few extra seconds it takes to hold down a letter to use them though.
Frisee is chicory. It's a crisp green. Too many pictures online of salade Lyonnaise where the green part of the frisee is used. You want to use the pale part.
A chopped salad is a chopped vegetable salad. It can have just about anything.
I like one with lots of different vegetables and herbs and pickled red onion. Fennel, cucumber, tomatoes, radishes, peppers, radicchio, endive, chives, tarragon, chervil, dill, pickled onions, and lemon vinaigrette. But any sort of combo is good. Pickled peppers, corn, anything. Feta or any cheese you like, hardboiled eggs can be added if you want protein.
I also really liked a white salad I used to make. It was raw celery root, parsnips, fennel, endive, turnips, plenty of lemon juice, olive oil, and a shaved cheese (we used Toma Celena, but Parmigiano or a similar cheese works).
This is a good salad for winter. So are citrus salads, especially with some beets.
For some reason, I love the phrase "chopped salad." Also, "Cobb salad."
Saria, what's the salad with tuna and eggs, etc. ? It has a French name. Maybe SIB would like that, too.
I wish I knew how to use my keyboard to punctuate French properly.
Me too, but (and I haven't read the previous posts so I hope I don't insult anybody here), I love it because to me it sounds soooo stupid. Aren't all salads chopped? When did this phrase come into being and WHY?
Well, no not all salads are chopped. A salad of tatsoi with duck confit for example, or endive spears with blue cheese, or a shaved fennel, watercress, and apple salad, or the aforementioned white salad.
But chopped salads refer to fairly small diced vegetables, cheese, meat, that make up the bulk of a salad. It can have lettuce, but it's not the focus and everything is a little more uniform in size.
I'm more of a vinegar/lime slaw type. Coleslaw with mayo has always been unpalatably sweet for me. I like buttermilk slaw though. And I bet coleslaw made with homemade mayo would remedy the sweetness problem.
Just slaws made with no creamy element. Melon and cucumber with mint and lime dressing for example. Apple, fennel, radish with rice wine vinegar. That sort of thing.
Your slaw sounds great. I love mustard seeds.
Ninja dog we are clearly related by fewer than 6 degrees of separation. I love lime!
