Salad Shooter…How 80s of me!


I received my Salad Shooter today!  Why a Salad Shooter you ask?  Let me explain…I am a klutz.  A total and complete klutz.  Here’s a prime example:  when I was a young child, I was riding my bike home from school, racing traffic and not paying attention to the fact that I was carrying my umbrella downward when my umbrella decided to make a lunge for my tire spokes.  Yep, head over feet (cue Alanis Morisette) I flew down the sidewalk and ended up in an upright position with my t-shirt over my head.  I have no shortage of klutz stories so many more will follow. 

If I can be this damaging with an umbrella, imagine me in the kitchen with a sharp knife.  I tried going the mandolin route but I ended up slicing off the side of my finger.  An ER trip and a tetanus shot later, I finally clotted but you see where I’m going with this. 

The Salad Shooter is highly rated on Amazon with thousands swearing by this $28 miracle in a box.  It comes with two fixtures, a shredder/grater or a slicer.  Screw the fixture one, throw your veggies in the hole at the top, plug it in and sliced veggies minus puncture wounds later…voila, I have salad toppings, sliced veggies, shredded carrots, you name it. 

I should also mention that I am a power tool junkie.  I am the Tim Taylor of our home.  I’m still working on the grunt, but I have the love of tearing up my house, injuring myself in the process and paying someone to fix my mess down to a science. 


The Salad Shooter slices my veggies and is an electrical, handheld plastic encased kick ass piece of power.  Now excuse me while I get out my knife to cut up some lettuce:)
