Salad - in a bowl or on a plate?

Just out of curiosity - do you prefer your salad in a bowl or on a plate? I am a recent convert from bowl to plate. Especially for meal-sized salads I find it's easier to get to the ingredients because the heavier ones don't fall to the bottom.
Bowl for me. Sometimes with a plate, I push food off the edge. Our bowls are more like soup plates, so wide and flat, but with an edge for leverage.
Depends - if I'm making an "arranged" salad - greens, slices of chicken, mango, red bell peppers, etc., I want it plated. If it's a regular "tossed salad", a bowl is fine.
If it's a Caesar, Chef's, Niçoise or a Lyonnaise then it's got to be a plate.
For something like larb, Panzanella, egg salad, chicken salad, coleslaw, potato salad, bean salad, or Tabbouleh then a bowl is fine.
