At Reagan National airport, which I frequent on my way to or from my corporate HQ, there’s a takeaway joint at the Jet Blue gates that for some reason never has the ability to cook the hot food on their menu. And because I’m usually on the last flight of the day and am starving by the time I get through the heinous security line where pre check is only a distant memory, I usually will need to eat something before my flight. Even if it’s cold. Hence the “love” salad, named by vendor not me.
Then you add your mozzarella and for an added treat, the joint always tosses the salad with some cooked pastina, the little star shaped pasta favored as first pasta for babies. Always makes me smile.
Add some basil, EVOO, and balsamic and toss. If you’re in the airport add a bottle of water and find a corner of an almost empty gate by a charging station and enjoy!
