After the panic and trauma and fear of the unknown that I now associate with cashew chicken, I was happy to make something comparatively easy and comfortable. Sean had a hankering for a meatball sub, which was his favorite sandwich at Subway before I moved in and insisted we eat at home all the time.
I'm not sure this demands any cooking explanations. Frozen meatballs + marinara + cheese + sub roll. The end.
But sometimes easy is exactly what you need. I'm pleasantly full and I didn't ruin anything, so I consider this a good day.
But I do think I could use your help. Sean doesn't much care for salad, but I quite like it and it's a great side for something like a meatball sub. Why doesn't he like salad? Because he only likes one thing in his salad: lettuce.
In case any of you didn't know this, you should know the challenges I face as a new cook: my beloved hates condiments. Salad dressing, dips, ketchup, etc. He hates all of them. He'll eat some other veggies in his salad, such as tomatoes, but I'm wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a simple, light dressing that would not offend his palate but maybe make salad more...um...palatable.
Any suggestions welcome!
