In recent years, the mention of this salad reminds me of the sequence in Ridley Scott's film 'A Good Year', when Russell Crowe is serving an American couple in a French restaurant.
"I would like a salad Neeswahzay with ranch dressing on ... I'm still on my diet, so I would like low-cal ranch dressing with no oil and could you sprinkle some bacon bits on top?"
It's probably very naughty of me, but the resulting head-on culture clash (let alone the irony of low cal dressing but with bacon bits!) leaves me giggling every time. I
watched the film again recently and it was the inspiration for today's
salad (except I forgot that I had anchovies in the cupboard, so didn't
add any ... and the last one I had in France used a big, tasty beef
tomato instead of cherry toms and some salad leaves instead of a wedge
of iceberg lettuce). The cats happily shared the tuna!
