Personally, I HATE grocery shopping. However, nothing makes me happier than telling someone in the grocery store that the tomato they just picked out is gonna taste like pig rectum. Be honest… Do you really know when mushrooms are in season?
This dish was a favorite of mine growing up. Ours was slightly less accessorized than this version. Our chipotle ranch came out of a squeeze bottle, and we tossed it by putting it in a plastic garbage bag and shaking the s#*t out of it.
In the past there wasn’t much about a making a salad that excited me. I always followed the basic midwestern formula of a tiny bit of greens, even less veggies, fistfuls of cheese, mostly croutons and a crap-ton of ranch dressing.
