I strive for simplicity. I like my linens white, so they all match. I like my condiments organized by type so I don't have to hunt down a rogue ketchup. One makeup or toiletry is to be immediately replaced with another. Unneeded things go the way of the donation bin. (Daniel doesn't particularly like this one.)
This translates to food and every aspect of my life. Salads, in particular, need not be ten ingredient behemoths requiring multiple tools and 30 minutes. Sometimes, 5 minutes and three ingredients will satisfy, impress and delight.
Make this salad.
Then throw away (donate / recycle) five things in your closet you haven't worn in the past 6 months. Next, open your fridge and remove that nasty jar of what-n-what you've been meaning to dispose of. Fold your towels. File three stray pieces of paper.
