Jazz up your Salads with the Rosle Grater

Want to add some variety to your salads?  Add some grated vegetables.  The colors and textures turn a plain salad into a rainbow of flavor and sensations.  My six year old son may not be in the mood for a salad, but if I show him a bowl full of bright green lettuce, orange shredded carrot, ruby red shredded beets and some sunflower seeds, that gets his attention!  Sometimes pulling out a box grater and then having to clean it up seems like too much work.  But a simple grater like this new Coarse Grater from Rosle fits the bill for fast and easy salad prep.

You can find cheaper graters, but they are not such a pleasure to use and will need to be replaced from time to time.  The Rosle will probably never need to be replaced.  It's made of quality 18/10 stainless steel and is dishwasher safe.  I love that you can prop it right over a bowl and grate your veggies right in, or, because of the rubber foot, it remains stable on a cutting board.  You could also use this grater for fruit, cheese, and chocolate.  Find it HERE.
