Introduction to this lettuce-free salad
Wether you yourself are your one and only "guest" or you are launching a dinner for 600... fact is we have definitely a situation here:
Unavoidably, recurrent thoughts about lettuce's whereabouts will always interfere with your guest's capability of enjoying a so-called "lettuce-free" salad.
In view of this, no attempt of secluding lettuce can ever really succeed!
In an effort to address this issue, the "Eye-opener lettuce-free salad" is meant for any host to convey a strategy that will focus on allowing lettuce to express its own story of *absence* along the narrative of a fairly simple dish.
This is done with the sole purpose of attaining the utmost genuine freedom from lettuce that any lettuce-free salad could ever offer, to any guest.
To this end -and before we talk about ingredients and preparation- I would like to kindly ask you to observe the following, fairly simple ritual for serving Jero's "Eye-opener lettuce-free salad":
Small individual servings of the finished salad (no more than one serving per guest) should be carried in (or put to display in) the dining room, each of them covered with a leaf of lettuce(sic).
In the very last moment before serving, the host will remove the lettuce leaf before the guest's eyes, clearly signifying its return to the kitchen for gentle recycling purposes.
Thus not only will the guest be able to bid farewell to lettuce, but will also gain soothing insight into the fact that time has come to enjoy some truly lettuce-free experience.
WARNING: As lettuce veils fall from the eyes, sudden enlightenment can occur.
