Salad just tastes better out of a square bowl. I don't know why but it does. This 6" square bowl is made from acacia wood and looks better and better as the years go by. I'm sure you know that you can't put wood in the dishwasher but it doesn't hurt to mention it again. And give it a wipe down with mineral oil every now and then to keep it from drying out. This size is about 3" deep.
