My dad, now well into his ninth decade on this planet, is ridiculously proud of his salads. If you met him and the subject of food came up (because really, when doesn’t it?), he’d boast that he eats “a salad every day.”

However, given his age (95+) and his lack of culinary prowess (he can make a mean soup, but that’s about it), his interpretation of “salad” goes like this:

  • one chunk (unwashed) iceberg lettuce
  • one quarter (unripe, potato-y) supermarket tomato
  • four slices cucumber
  • a few shreds plain yellow onion [on a particularly festive day, it’s replaced with green onion]
  • bottled Italian dressing

So you see my conundrum. I mean, how do you try to correct the impresson of a 95 year-old? It’s disrespectful. In fact, it’s just rude. (Besides, he can’t hear you, anyway).

Over the years, I realized that the concept of “salad” in our house wasn’t quite what it is today. The standard definition of “salad” to mean a mix of bite-sized leafy and/or raw vegetables seems to have morphed in recent decades to include anything in a dressing of any kind (including mayonnaise, tahini, mashed avocado, etc); fruits along with vegetablesbread and veggies; beans and legumes; warm beans and legumes; grainspasta; and even a sickly-sweet combination of canned fruit and marshmallows.
