SaladFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Salad is a non-runny, ready-to-eat dish made of heterogeneous ingredients in a wet or once wet base served chilled or at a moderate temperature. Many people use the word "salad" to describe light, savory leafy vegetable dishes often served with a sauce or dressing but the category usually additionally includes dishes made of such ingredients as fruits, grains, meats, seafood, and sweets. It has been pointed out that is difficult to define what is meant by the term "salad" - many salads use raw vegetable, but some salads use cooked ingredients, and most salads use vegetables, but such things as fruit salads (which use fruit rather than vegetables also exist.
It seems clear that the List of Salads page is likely written by someone who may never have actually made a salad. Highlight salads include Arab salads, Cheese slaw, Crab Louie, Eggplant salads and appetizers, and the Snickers salad.
The nice person would jump in and help the drowning people, but I'm just going to stand on the edge and point and giggle, because THAT'S THE TYPE OF PERSON I AM.
A lovely addendum from my friend Karl:
"In case you would not know, in French, the expression:
Quelle salade! (what salad)
means 'What a mess!', a confusing situation and
Raconter des salades. (Telling salads)
means 'Telling cracks.'"
