I like to add a couple anchovies on top.

Any and all of the salads on the list.

I really have no favorite type of salad. If more than one is offered for a meal, I'll pigout on all of them. :)

I understand, Ishbel. I have a friend that absolutely refuses to eat iceberg lettuce.

Me too! They don't serve it that way in a restaurant very often, but they are tasty...and I'm not usually a fan of cold fish either.

i LOVE salad, i eat at least one a day. i also really enjoy making salad.
on the poll i chose other. i love most salads, but i really prefer a big garden salad with tons of different kinds of veggies on it... cucumber, tomato, peppers, carrots, radishes, cold cooked veggies, all that good stuff. i like some cheeses on salads, like bleu or feta, but the one thing i cant stand is something like cheapo cheddar grated on a salad... yuck. my favorite dressing by far is Annie's Goddess dressing.

I'm voting tomatoes because that's what is in the garden. If you'd asked me six weeks ago, it would have been fresh mixed greens. Right now it is also thin sliced small cukes, or sometimes coarse cut cukes made into kimchee. I'm trying to weed through a section of garden and start a second greens garden, but after a stressfull summer, not sure I'm ready to start over. I'm just worn out.

I agree, HappyA. Even when I buy it in a bag, there is no such thing a day without salad in my house. That is the way I was raised.

Claire, when I was younger my mom made sure that we ate a green salad with dinner everyday. If all she could afford was some iceberg, tomatoes, radishes, and carrots that is what we had.

I cannot bring myself to vote, at all. Sorry. Love them all, and grew up with them all. Except the tomato/basil/moz, which I learned in latter days. When you can get 'em, eat 'em is my theory.
