And How Do You Like Your Salad

The NYT reports that New Yorkers love salad. Can’t get enough. Especially when it’s chopped up. Macerated salad. Yum yum yum.

Lauren Rodrigue knows a little bit about that. (“’Cheddar, Mozzerella, Eggs, Pasta, Fried Chicken, Ranch. Oh! And a donut! Yeah, man! Throw that donut in there! Tortilla strips.’”)

So does William Foster. (“A typical salad for me weighs in around the $7-$9 range, but once in a while one enters the rarified $11 — $13 stratum, and when that happens, Tom shoots me a knowing smile.”) (He brought his New York salad sensibility with him to Oregon.)

One friend cannot stand chopped salads. Why do I want to eat a salad that’s already been chewed, he asked me recently. He didn’t expect an answer. There is no answer.

I prefer premade salads because I don’t like telling people what to do.
