Looks good to me! Not sure whether to pour melted butter or heavy cream into it? ;-)
Or to pair it with white wine or a PBR?

Dave used to make the best salads, better than I could. He would cut up every veggie he could, add maybe a hard boiled egg or shredded chicken, ham or beef and top it all with cheese. He was one of a kind, I guess, because he liked salad with veggies.

Salad = Iceberg* lettuce + tomatoes + cucumber + celery + sweet peppers [+ onion in mine, not my wife's]. End. of. story! [almost]

Since I'm generally the salad chef, KISS rules the day ... although my wife occasionally cajoles (?) me into some Romaine [apparently Iceberg isn't "green" enough.sad]

* = the ONLY lettuce anybody ever needs.  devil

Edit: And part of KISS is cutting things to bite-sized, or a bit smaller, pieces .... none of that nonsense that seemingly gets taught wherever middle-of-the road restaurants train (?) their kitchen workers ... having to try to cut it on the already full plate and having it spill over onto the table isn't my idea of a pleasant meal.

Not only do I make my own salads, I make my own salad dressings. Not sure if that makes me more or less manly, but that's for y'all to argue about, and might keep this thread going for another page or two...  cheeky

.... and to ^^ end,  while not "making" a salad >> https://www.pinterest.com/pin/176273772904799296/

Edit: And when we get sufficient (?) pages, we can "discuss" why commercially prepared potato salads all too often have the pieces of potatoes too big and somewhat under-cooked.... don't they have any test guinea pigs?

Edit#2: KP, your salad in the OP looks like some yogurt [NOT vanilla] would be an okay dressing. yes

Should this topic be when a man makes a salad I mean there are a lot of us mans that would rather utilize the time it takes to make a salad by tossing a couple of ribeyes on the grill.

Is potato salad really a salad?  And what about chicken salad?  If they're salads, then it seems like any random mish mash of ingredients in a bowl qualifies as a salad.

According to these guys https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salad a salad is a salad is a salad.  They say " ... mixed ingredients, frequently vegetables," but  to my way of thinking, mishmash sounds just as good as mixed, and although the ingredient list isn't cast in stone, I wouldn't call it random.  For example, if there's no celery in our fridge when I go to conjure up a lettuce salad, is it no longer a salad,  or is it just random ingredients?   

I'm gonna dig out our Ouija Board later today and ask my Mom a few details about her potato mishmash ... potatoes were always well-cooked and mashed [i.e. NO HARD CHUNKS!!!] but some of the other ingredients [eg. radishes] varied ......... within limits. 

[But, hard chunks of potato mixed into some dressing might not qualify ...  I've told the dudes at Reser's, but they pay me no mind....

Reser's Fine Foods New Deli Salads | Prepared Foods

... although their "3-bean mishmash" is pretty good.

Edit: Is a Newfie tatie-pork cake really a cake?  devil

Red leaf lettuce, grape tomatos, sweet pepper, raisins (sometimes dried cherries), Grannysmith apple, feta, chicken, homemade oil & vinegar dressing, and some of my homemade secret spice mix.

As to salad dressings. My wife makes her own. Usually a simple vinegar and oil ratio with a bit of seasonings and dry herb mix. Her dressing always tastes good, and she never adds sugar. Try to find a bottle of salad dressing that does not contain sugar-even many of the boutique brands and styles. Why is that? It is not needed for flavor, IMHO. Brad

...no claim as to it being a meaningful comparison, but I see in this week's yocal flyer:  Boneless beef striploin grilling steak = Cdn. $18.99/lb. ...  T-bone steak = $10.99/lb.  ...  broccoli crowns = $2.99/lb.  

But, but, but it's reassuring to know that the steaks were cut by my "local butcher/expert" .... who know where the broccoli has been???  wink
