Registered dietitian, Nina Struss with Hy-Vee, returns to PSL on this Tuesday to highlight knife skills in the kitchen. This topic is addressed in detail in Hy-Vee’s April issue of Seasons magazine (always FREE in stores).

No matter the job, having the right tools makes it easier and more enjoyable. When it comes to cooking, that means your kitchen knives. She is putting those skills to the test by making a colorful Spring Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette.
