FF: The Herb and Salad Chopper from Microplane

I like a nice chopped salad as much as the next guy but never make them at home – too much work. Now the prospect of homemade chopped salad is much closer since I found the elegant Herb and Salad Chopper from the fine folks at Microplane.

About the Herb and Salad Chopper from Microplane:

“The Microplane Herb and Salad Chopper was awarded the 2015 iF Design Award! Grab this convenient and efficient Herb and Salad Chopper when the recipe calls for chopped leafy greens or herbs.  Two ultra-sharp, surgical stainless steel blades are fixed into the handle and retract into the unit for storage.  Three simple steps to activate the blades. Pull the release tab out, then push down on the tab until the blades appear, finally release tab on the other end.  Now the mezzaluna is ready for use.  The double blade provides efficient and effortless mincing or chopping by rocking the unit back and forth over the greens. Super sharp blades easily chop fresh leafy greens, and herbs and mince onions, garlic, chocolate, and nuts.  The handle is shaped to fit the curve of your hand and has a soft-touch grip making it comfortable to use.”

Sometimes you need to chop and other times you need to muddle – which is why everyone needs a good muddler – like the classic wooden muddler I found from the fine folks at Toronto-based Cocktail Emporium.
