The Best Kitchen Tool Ever
I wasn’t going to blog today because I’m deep in my knitting and trying to finish up three different projects to post pictures of later this week. But what I need to share with you is SO IMPORTANT I have set aside my needles for a few minutes and rushed to the computer. The information below may just change your life. I’m not even joking.
Here’s my super important announcement:
That magic little device is a VeggieChop Vegetable Chopper. I bought mine from Williams-Sonoma a couple years ago, with a gift card that was burning a hole in my pocket and a hatred of chopping onions that bordered on total obsession. I HATE the cutting-stuff-up part of cooking. HATE IT. But this thing has totally changed the way I make dinner. It’s easy, uses no electricity, effective and dishwasher-safe. I want to mail one to every single mom I know to help save them precious minutes during dinner prep.
And if you’re like me and get sudden, urgent cravings for fresh salsa, it is a LIFESAVER.
I had all this stuff in my fridge: tomatoes, cilantro, red onion, garlic
Throw in a good pinch of sea salt, some lime juice and a dash of hot sauce…
…and you just pull the handle. It’s like starting a teeny tiny lawnmower (there’s a video on the Williams-Sonoma site). You can pull just two or three times to get a rough chop or lots and lots of times for a fine chop. I think I probably pulled 5 or 6 times. Took less than 30 seconds.
It was the most delicious salsa I’ve ever had. I ate the whole bowl while writing this. I ran out of chips and just used a spoon. True story.
