When I was in WA I went shopping in Koreatown and picked up a few fun kitchen toys. These Japanese fruit/vegetable cutters were among my booty. Over the weekend we made a couple green salads and I thought it would be a good time to try them out.
It was fun using the cutters to punch flower shapes out of carrot and cucumber slices (my 3 year-old niece was especially enchanted) and we ended up with the cutest salad ever.
I looked around online and found the cutters for sale here (but I've never heard of this site so caveat emptor).
