Two MUST HAVE ingredients for CHOPPED SALAD you won't find in any recipe!
Chop quality wooden bowl
A Chop quality wooden bowl (preferably 10" or 12") easy to hold, a chop bowl is just that not the prettiest gallery bowl but a kitchen workhorse you will also use for your home made dressings including your Caesar dressing, coleslaw and even pie dough.

Mezzaluna or Ulu a crescent-shaped blade
Mezzaluna or Ulu a crescent-shaped blade is sharpened along its whole length, allowing people to rock it from one side all the way to the other for a clean cut. The handles allow people to control the blade without the risk of injury; The handles are typically made from wood.
It can take a few tries to get used to using a mezzaluna. You can experiment with both flat cutting boards and rounded bowls to get the hang of it.
Once people learn to control mezzalunas, they can use these tools for things like mincing garlic and herbs, finely chopping tomatoes for sauces, and engaging in a variety of other tasks. A mezzaluna can also be used as a pastry knife, chopping shortening into flour to make an assortment of dough’s. Some people find that once they start using a mezzaluna for such tasks, it can be difficult to use an ordinary knife.

Using the chop bowl your salad ingredients fall back to the center of a chop bowl naturally. Your fingers aren't in danger of being chopped off in the process either, because you don't have to hold the herbs while you chop.
