We borrow a lot of things from France - their bread, their macarons, their Nicoise salad - but do we also borrow their dinner traditions?
In French culture, salad is eaten after the main meal, as a sort of palate cleanser before the dessert or cheese (or both) comes out. In America, we’ve been known to reverse that entirely, starting a meal off with our greens, and following with the larger, more substantial main. Like French recipes, is this a tradition that we’d like to borrow as well? Let us know in the comments: when do you eat your salad?
