Salads

I know there are many here who are of the opinion that salad is not food, it is what food eats. That being said, for those that like salad, or just eat it to have something to do until the food arrives... what do you like in a salad?

I like most kinds of lettuce, spinach, purple cabbage, cucumber, tomato, radish, carrot, brocolli, cauliflower, egg, cheese, ham, turkey, pecan, walnut, sunflower seed, and almost any dressing except ranch. If I can get avacodo in the three minutes it is good, it may be included.

Some of the best salads I've had looked like compost piles with greens I couldn't quite identify.

I'm with gecko. As many contrasting greens as possible, with a splash of some sort of vinaigrette. Anything but balsamic

Oh, and I do love some red and orange bell peppers sliced up in there. Mmm

I love me a good Caesar salad, with real, anchovie-ey Caesar dressing, good croutons, parmisan cheese, and grilled or blackened chicken. I like salad in general as long as there's no fruit in it. No apples, grapes, dried cranberries, strawberries, or mandarin oranges.

And bacon. Bacon is always good.

When you put bacon in a salad, it's no longer a salad. It just becomes a game of "Find the Bacon in the Lettuce". It's like you're panning for gold.

I once had a wedge salad. It was killer but I couldn't help thinking it was just an elaborate ploy to reduce the labor costs of preparing a salad.

When I make it myself: Iceberg lettuce, carrots, purple cabbage, cucumbers, and grape tomatoes. Dressing is whatever I feel like at the time - usually ranch or a vinaigrette.

There's a gyro place around here that has a great Greek salad: Romaine lettuce, sliced tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, Kalamata olives, feta, and grated carrot with olive oil and vinegar splashed onto the whole thing.

Caesar salads are what I order at most restaurants.

That wedge salad pictured up there ^ looks awesome. I once got one of those with diced tomatoes, bacon, Gorgonzola, and blue cheese dressing.

Three salads I like:

1. Salad Bar Salad - usually put lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and cheese on it, then some kind of oil-and-vinegar combination.

2. Caesar Salad - 'Nuff said. I gotta say, Pizza Express over in the UK does them pretty well, anchovies and all. Also like them with steak, chicken, or salmon.

3. "Sammy Salad" - it's from a local restaurant. Spinach, walnuts, cherry tomatoes, apple slices, and crumbled bleu-cheese, with a oil-and-vinegar dressing.

I felt the same way. Something like this...

Let's have the customer cut up the lettuce themselves, but we can still charge more for it by giving it a designer name.....wedge salad.

I don't like iceberg lettuce, nor am I particularly fond of cabbage. Red cabbage is all right. "The darker the green-ness, the better" is my rule of thumb

Oh and Mike, I found a good salad spinner at Wal-Mart for $5

Yay!! Way to go buddy. Spin away. We love ours.

I used to only eat iceberg lettuce, but thankfully my wife showed me some better options. I don't really like iceberg either anymore.

I know, right? That's exactly how it is. You go back and look at iceberg and it's like, "this....tastes like cold green water chips"

I think what you probably have is the bulgur part of it. You're supposed to soak it in water to get it soft and mix it with the rest of the ingredients to make tabbouleh.

this is what I have exactly

In defense of my laziness, you have to open the package to read the directions, and I didn't want to open the package not knowing what I was getting myself into
