When I was young, my mother told me to never use a knife to chop salad greens. "They'll turn brown," she said. "Always tear them with your hands." To this day, I have never been able to prove this wrong or right; I usually make salads and eat them on the same day so they don't have a chance to turn brown. I also often do use a knife now, especially when chopping romaine or another crunchier lettuce. What about you? How do you chop up your salad greens?

And now, just in case you're craving a green salad after all that, here's a great roundup of some of our best spring salads.
