When recreating my favorite protein salad from Urbane Cafe I learned why kitchen staff have to wear non-slip shoes. Every time I have been forced to don non-slip shoes in a kitchen I thought it was a total joke.   Now I know better, slipping is serious business, and those  ugly shoes are probably worth the fashion faux pas!

If you want to make some nice slippery wood floors, a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar will do the trick.

Last weekend when preparing this salad I discovered that cute boots and a garbanzo bean on a wood floor can be catastrophic.  As I was carrying my perfectly plated salad into the dining room my boot found that darn little bean.  All of a sudden my feet slid out beneath me and I was laying on my back on the kitchen floor.  My salad plate literally flew from the kitchen,  half way across the dining room and the dressing went everywhere! Including the floors, the chairs, the walls and even the ceiling! Needless to say, I survived without any major injuries, and from now on I am going to put on those unsightly non-slip cooking shoes. Thanks to my college food service teacher for making me buy them.
