    I wish you'd take this as seriously as I am!!!! This is important!!!

    I think that you misunderstand me - the salad days are gone - there is NOTHING more important to me than my rite to define char-grilled peppers, onions and courgette DRESSED in Balsamic & Olivie Oil as SALAD!!!

    You mayo or not believe me - I am not trying to egg you on, please do not beet(root) me, I know at times I can be a bit of a crouton but I am not chicken even if you kick me up the asparagus.

    Lettuce shake parmeshands and get SALAD defined together.

    Isn't beetroot always cooked before it is added to a salad? If your definition is raw veg or fruit that means it can not be a salad ingredient.

    Beetroot is such a versatile root can be grated raw, boiled, pickled or chutneyed (hmm reminds me of my stag night!)

    Still - if it aint dressed it aint salad it's just naked veg or fruit.

    I eat my salad undressed, sometimes add a dressing but I love raw veg and if it's fresh and tasty who needs oil and vinegar?

    If you think a salad should be various ingredients, don't order salads in Greece. A Greek salad has several ingredients but if you order a "tomato salad" that's what you get - a plate of sliced tomatoes.

    True, with a brobdingnagian chunk of Feta cheese on top. Where in the title does it mention that? It never says "Tomato & Feta salad" but you get it nonetheless. Is it a freebie?

    Some years ago my wife & her sister ordered a Garlic Salad on the island of Skopelos and, when it arrived, it proved to be.... a plate of pureed garlic !
    (I don't think either of them pulled, that night...)

    It's all Greek to me.
    Expect the worst & hope for the best...

    I'm just making a bean salad - these MUST be cooked and I will DRESS them too.

    That reminds me..

    A: What's THAT?

    B: It's Bean Salad!

    A: Yes, but WHAT IS IT NOW???!!!

    :p

    We've been here before Matt :rotfl:

    The beans are cooked but served cold, and there is more than one type , so together they constitute salad.

    The dressing, as ever, is an optional extra. :D
