Little bits of veggies are so much better than big blocks. Really, its true. I tried a variation of this recipe from the Moosewood Cookbook and was so suprised at the difference chopping, mincing, grating and dicing made to the actual taste of the veggies. This salad is super easy to make and a great change from the same-old lettuce leaves. ps. Variations or omissions of a few ingredients is fine, but the seeds make the salad.
