Salad… Hold the Chocolate Chips

Do you see anything funny about this picture?  I do.

Who puts chocolate chips on a salad?!

My mother does. While at my house recently, she offered to make me a salad.  Yes, I know what you all are thinking.  Wow! Your mom cooks for you!!  (Ok, maybe not.)

Despite my mother’s cooking prowess and years of experience, we don’t have the same taste.  She craves crunchy foods, whereas I crave savory.  She loves to top salads with fruits and nuts.  On the other hand I love saladditions (that would be salad – additions) such as hearts of palm, roasted asparagus, artichokes, seasoned tofu, etcetera.

In my mother’s selfless attempt in making a healthy salad for lunch, she discovered my individual packets of seeds, nuts and chocolates (which, by the way, is a great grab and go snack for my kids).  Not paying too much attention, she completely missed the fact that chocolate chips were in the mix.

The end result? A wonderful salad.  And yes, I held the chocolate chips… and enjoyed them later 🙂
