Well, I know what I'm having for dinner tonight.  

And  I'm not a huge olive guy, but those stuffed ones sound good. Gonna give them a try.

Why do you think salad bars have like 50 ingredients?  It's a salad.  You're supposed to put a bunch of garbage in there.

get out of here with that iceberg and romaine lettuce nonsense. Anything other than arugula or spinach is unacceptable.

On the olive front those jarred sliced green and black olives are an inferior product compared to Kalamatas. This is not even debatable.  Stuffed green olives (jalapenos, blue cheese etc...) are also good. 

Everything else is up to you.

Salad Bars

Who the heck puts corn, potato salad, pasta, on a salad?

What is the point of that?

Just order the freaking casserole.

Bibb lettuce is top of the ladder but don't throw rocks at iceberg.  IF YOU PUT SLICED GREEN SALAD OLIVES on your salad and make a real vinagrette...... The iceberg has a firmer texture and can hold up to the acidity without wilting.

You ever see a wedge made out of Arugula?

Did you know that Kalamata olives are cured in RED WINE VINEGAR and not balsamic vinegar.

Did you even know that?

My title is in tact.

do not tell me about what they are cured in. tell me how superior they are.

You are on a slippery slope there Fried.

going to have to agree with the shrimpster here

everything has it's purpose

you can't really make a grilled ceasar salad with arugala or spinach,,,,,you have to be able to put half an intact head of romaine on the grille

and he's right about iceberg, sometimes you need something that holds firm with some crunch to it. And then you have some lettuce for your BLT as well

bibb
romaine
iceberg
baby spinach
spinach
arugula

all have a role in the salad world

Sure you can make a grilled ceasar salad with arugula and spinach (especially spinach).  And you can also put arugula and spinach on sandwiches as well. I do it almost daily. I even put them in a grilled cheese sometime.  I just think that the flavor of arugula and spinach (especially arugula with that peppery flavor) is infinitely superior to iceberg.

But ultimately you are correct in that all are serviceable for a salad.

You can't have salad without feta cheese.  It's just wrong.

I go to a place that has a wedge salad made with iceberg.  But it doesn't do much for you nutritionally.  I usually do romaine, mixed greens, and some spinach.
