COULD SOMEONE tell me when the nitwits at Phillies games started to call for anybody who catches a ball hit by an opposing player to throw it back onto the field? That's a Chicago Cubs tradition. If you want to start a tradition here, have security grab the morons who throw the hot dogs on the field on dollar dog days and stick them somewhere that's not printable in this newspaper.

"Salad days" are every day for slim gourmets! Fresh vegetables are a part of every meal, right? No? Why not? Can't shop often enough? Nobody can agree on ingredients? Can't stand/can't live without garlic (onions, green pepper, radishes, etc.) ? The family wants high-calorie dressings, but you don't? Here are some salad survival tips for getting the good greenery every day with minimum hassle: MAKE A MINI SALAD BAR: Serve a "suit-yourself" salad tray, instead of a salad in a bowl, with ingredients in separate mounds or piles on a shallow platter so each family member can assemble his or her own. SERVE SALAD NAKED: The salad, not you!

The secret to successful salad-making is speedy preparation and quick delivery, lest your lettuce wilt to a wad of damp tissue before its time. But even wilting won't cause worry once you know another secret: the secret of salad longevity. It's marination, a simple process that not only makes a salad immune to the ravages of time but guarantees that it will miraculously improve with age. Marinated salads are already part of most cooks' warm-weather repertoires. Coleslaw and potato, pasta and three-bean salads are marinated favorites that lend themselves to hundreds of variations.

Oh for the simplicity of a perfectly made salad. Martha Stewart, under investigation for alleged insider trading, told The Early Show host Jane Clayson that all she wanted to do was make a salad, but paused long enough from cabbage-slicing to predict she would be "exonerated of any ridiculousness. " Clayson persisted with questions about the domestic diva's stocks. Stewart sold 4,000 shares of ImClone stock the day before the Food and Drug Administration announced that it wouldn't approve the biotech firm's new drug for battling colorectal cancer.

Even though the popular "spring mix" of greens has become ubiquitous in grocery stores year round, it just seems wrong to rely on it as a main salad ingredient every season of the year - especially in winter. Once, not so long ago, farmers, gardeners and diners waited eagerly for the first tender young leaves of lettuces and other greens to herald spring. Nowadays, modern farming, processing and shipping allows us all to serve clean and ready-cut salad from a bag whenever we please.

The young, harried executive returns to her desk to find a message that her husband has telephoned. She returns his call. "The reason I called," he explains, "is to find out if you would be agreeable to having stuffed shrimp, roast Cornish hen and Caesar salad for dinner this evening?" "That would be perfect," she replies. "And don't forget to chill some wine. " Was that a conversation between a working wife and a househusband, a husband about to spend hours food-shopping and then more time in the kitchen?

Neal Anderson was sitting at his locker, eating forkfuls of salad from a plastic container. Last year, the superb Chicago Bears running back would dash off during his lunch break and later return with a hamburger and two orders of fries. Anderson ate like that "three times a day," but then it finally dawned on him that he was wrecking his health. Thus, when the Bears now break to eat and his teammates gravitate to the pizza, Anderson slides over to the salad bar. "I realized the diet I had was awful," Anderson said.

The ice cubes and the tossed salad were the source of the illness that caused food-poisoning symptoms in more than 100 people who dined at the Woodbine Inn over the Memorial Day weekend, state health officials said yesterday. According to Lyn Finelli, an epidemiologist with the Division of Communicable Diseases at the Health Department, preliminary lab tests conducted this week determined that the viral illness was associated with people who ate salads and drank beverages containing ice between May 22 and last Sunday.

From her stoop next to Kurth's Seafood, known for its fried fish, Elestine Ashlock, at 82, can see beyond the papers in the gutter and the empty lots, still see the world as it was - the sprawling, brick trolley works at Ninth and Susquehanna, and Silk's grocery (or was it a drugstore?), and the old bookbindery, and a block away, the pretzel factory. There was much more in North Philadelphia, circa 1936, the year Jacob Kurth began selling his 35-cent fish platters (fried flounder, hand-cut fries, and choice of cole slaw or potato or macaroni salad)

Think It's a Wonderful Life and Oliver! - with a reptilian twist. Or Saving Green Fruit Loop. That works, too. About a week ago, Sally Mabon, a Princeton mom and policy researcher, was washing some tatsoi, a kind of Asian spinach bought at a local health-food store, only to find an unexpected houseguest - a little lizard nestled in the leaves. Surprised, she called over daughter Faye Steingart, the family's resident kindergartner, to take a peek. Admittedly, the little creature wasn't looking good: brown, shriveled, limp from a couple of days in the family's refrigerator.

A salad with serious chops To order an unvetted chopped salad requires a certain leap of faith - that the reality delivered to your table will live up to your vision of the real deal, vividly fresh and mined with bursts of texture and flavor. Disappointment often follows. But on rare occasion you will be rewarded with an uncommonly original variant, as we were at a recent lunch, on the order of Valeria's Chopped Salad at Lolita, the lively Mexican eatery retooled (and liquor-licensed)

Salad season is here. Every color and texture of vegetable is on farm stands, store shelves, or out back in the garden, so you can be shredding, chopping, and arranging magnificent summer feasts with minimum cooking and maximum flavor. And this summer, all we are really craving are salads for dinner, the kind of meal that doesn't leave us feeling weighed down in the heat. Yet, a main-course salad should be substantial and satisfying - with a balance of crisp and soft, crunchy and smooth, tart and sweet.
