What's your favourite salad?

I reckon potato salad. But let me explain.

1y ago

It’s worth noting if you’re ever invited to a Coleman lunch, and you hear that potato salad is going round, that the dish in question is actually a bowl of chips.

Actual potato salad as everyone else understands it, is what I’ve described in another post as a giant’s sneeze. Potato, mayo, egg, and bacon are all amazing things on their own, but cold and combined is vile.

As is Waldorf salad, controversially, coleslaw, and as one of the worst dishes my mum every served up as a main revealed, warm salad. Nobody wants warm leaves with chickpeas as a main course. Nobody wants it as a side either.

Of course, I've had weird and excellent salads, with broccoli and cheese and fruit thrown in and tossed, but it hasn't swayed me. If we're not counting the Coleman potato salad, then the greatest salad of all is Caesar's own. With extra croutons.

  • Classic Greek salad... in Greece...preferably on the beach with a glass of local white wine to wash it all down with.

    Amazing tomatoes, cucumber, black olives, red onion, oregano, olive oil, lemon and a slab of feta. Can’t beat it 🍽

  • Caesar salad. Bonus points for adding a bit of crumbled feta. A meal if adding nicely cooked bits of chicken.

  • Oh that’s a tough one. A Greek salad or a Lebanese fattoush salad is probably my favourite. Also avocado salad! I agree with the sentiments towards Waldorf salad - it’s just plain awful.

    • Loooove fattoush. Sumac is the best.

    • I’ve never had fattoush salad, but I looked up a recipe and it sounds amazing.

  • I really dig a nice Caesars Salad. With all the Bacon Bits, Croutons and Dressing you can get.
