Chopped Salad--utensil

westsider40July 19, 2012

My girlfriend, who doesn't cook at all, thinks there is such a thing as a salad chopper. She says that she was at a restaurant and mistakenly received an unchopped salad, after she had ordered a chopped salad. "Someone" came over and "whiz bang" did something to the pile of lettuce in the bowl with a gizmo--and she had a chopped salad.

I've thought of a mezzaluna and other shorter mezzalunas. I cannot think of a gizmo which would chop the salad, primarily the lettuce, after it's already in the serving bowl.

Can you help?

This gizmo looks like it might do the trick.

I have this, though I don't think it's what you're talking about if they did it in her serving bowl. But I really like it. I use it almost every day for salads and it's much faster than chopping everything individually.

I use an alligator chopper like this. Makes short work of any vegetable. It's great for salad and really useful when we get together for our Salsa canning weekend.

Thank you all for your helpful suggestions. They kind of remind me of my mother's old, old, chopped liver chopper-which I have and sharpened. thanks again.
