The Salad Virgin
Let me guess: you’re new to the salad bar. The fruity accessories whisper that you’re craving something sweet…And the limp iceberg lettuce tells me that you’re not playing the nutrition game. Well, whatever you’re in the mood for, rest assured that you came to the right place. Welcome to the world of salad artisanship—you have much to learn, young grasshopper.
The “Health Freak”
You’re one of the select few people on campus who actually eat that weird seaweed-looking lettuce. But you don’t really mind, ’cause the cranberries and sunflower seeds make you look super artsy. For you, salad might be more of an advertisement of taste than a judgment of nutrition. Just remember that it doesn’t always hurt to take a page from the Cobb Salad’s book.
Can I Get a Caesar?
So you like some salad with your dressing. Maybe you’re the kind of person whose preferred dip is ranch. Or maybe today you’re aiming for something a little earthier than your usual Cup-o-Noodles dinner (which basically just means that you’re in the mood for some breaded cheese). Either way, it’s hard to go wrong with salad’s version of comfort food.
The leaves tell me that you’re well versed in the salad making craft. Balsamic dressing is your staple—although sometimes, if you’re feeling edgy, you opt for straight balsamic vinegar. As the salad world’s creature-of-habit, you tend to eat a salad for pretty much every meal. But who said that’s such a bad thing?
Odds are you work on the school farm in your spare time. Or at the very least, you’re up-to-date on the latest health trends. Props to you—you are the gods and goddesses of the salad-loving world; the ones who grow their leaf and eat it, too.
