Salads are…well, they’re not steak. But they can be better with the right ingredients. Everyone has his or her own tastes in what makes a good salad. For example, when I asked Taisie this question, she responsed with “onions” and “cillantro.” But with all due respect to her, that’s crazy.
There is a hierarchy of salad toppings, and here it is:
THE TOP TEN ITEMS YOU CAN PUT ON YOUR SALAD
#10 CARROTS – You don’t just have to have them diced. You can also try shaved; a great change-up.
#9 APPLES – It’s a fairly useless fruit, but cut them up and your salad is doin’ the Happy Dance.
#8 SUNFLOWER SEEDS – What salad wouldn’t be improved by a few of these crunchy little morsels? No salad I’d want to eat.
#6 CROUTONS – I like the big giant ones that look like you could build a house out of them.
#5 CUCUMBERS – Also handy if for some reason you need to exfoliate near the salad bar.
#4 CHEESE – I’m hankerin’ for a hunk a, a really big a chunk a….
#3 OLIVES – I once met a man who didn’t like olives. He’s dead now. Draw your own conclusions.
#2 TOMATOES – Cherry are the standard, but grape tomatoes work equally well. And Sun dried…aren’t we rich!
And the number one item to put on your salad….
#1 BACON – As if there were any doubt (For more on this phenomenon, see the BLKF Theory)
