Hanabi has been on a delicious New Orleans bender, and that train is still rolling. As Hanabi gets set to head out to New Orleans, he decided that since it’s going to be a calorie bust, he might as well get into some salad. Healthy, green salad. There are good salads, and there are bad salads. Hanabi wants you to eat more good salads. By the way, the best salad is the salad Nicoise. Yes, it’s better than a Cobb salad, and is slightly better than a Caesar salad. Of note, Hanabi means the actual Caesar salad made the proper way with raw yolks table-side, and not that ridiculous cream based dressing that passes for Caesar dressing. Oh, and it has to have the anchovies too. Since we’re talking Salad, Hanabi had a Chef’s salad at the Standard in New Orleans. The Chef’s salad is pretty good, still not up to a Nicoise though. Nothing goers better with a salad than a Sazerac. Remember that.
