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:)
