Just another interesting challenge: The salad is not my friend

I'll tell you very honestly!  Whenever I eat outside of the comfort of my home, I do my best to avoid those overloaded salad bowls with large slices of everything in them.

You see, those large slices, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, or anything else for that matter, often create challenges for someone who is blind or vision-impaired.  It is difficult for us to control our forks in a very limited space, this being our salad bowls.

It is difficult for us to avoid spilling our salads onto the table and not knowing how large a slice really is, we often have to deal with uncertainty. Sure, we can estimate the size of a slice with our forks but when the slice is too large we need to cut it and here is where the challenge arises.

For me, I do my best to avoid these slices.  I often decline the salad if I know beforehand that it contains large slices.  Just my way of dealing with salads.
