I'm not a big fan of mustardy salad dressings, but I'll tolerate it if someone out it on my plate. I like most salads. My wife has a severe dislike for ranch dressing, no idea why, and ceasar, because she can't stand anchovies.
\let's just say that there are parts of a salad which I wouldn't eat....for example tomatoes....did you know that tomatoes are actually poisonous? Well they are.....at least that's what I tell folk who try (yet again) to get me to eat one. Ick. and that goes for olives too. Totally poisonous (trust me....would I lie to you???!!)
Oh! wotsy, ONLY if you eat the leaves, stems, vines, & unripened tomatoes. There are two toxicities there, tomatine, & solenine, the latter is found with green potatoes, as well.
I've eaten Tomatoes every which way, all my life, & never had a problem with them! Really enjoy just eating a washed tomato, with salt sprinkled on!
As someone with coeliac disease I am often given a salad with no croutons or dressing if I try to eat out. Usually a pile of green leaves, a few bits of tomato, and if I'm lucky some carrot or cheese. I loathe it, and think it can just barely be classified a salad. Homemade salads however - yum! Love making my own dressing and adding loads of tasty ingredients like olives, bacon, eggs, rice noodles, chilli, mango, nuts, etc.
