Expert Tips

  • Have you ever wondered what the difference is between diced and cubed? It's all in the size—diced means less than 1/2 inch, and cubed is 1/2 inch or larger.
  • Serve the croutons on the side if you think you'll have leftover salad. That way, when you serve the salad again, you'll still have crisp, fresh croutons.
  • Remove the tops and spoon out the middles of medium to large tomatoes, and fill them with pasta salad. Voilà..., stuffed tomato salads!
