Chopsticks are for more than just Asian takeaway: they’re practically tailor-made for salad consumption.
This tip is so obvious in hindsight, yet I’ve been stabbing at lettuce and croutons with a fork like a sucker my entire life. The chopsticks act as an extension of your fingers to scoop and lift the various salad ingredients towards your mouth. Unlike forks, which struggle with croutons and flimsy lettuce leaves, chopsticks work well for every part of the salad.
If you’re a little rusty on using chopsticks, you can always use a rubber band to make a nice training set.
