Do You Eat Your Salad Before or After Your Main Entree?

I've been all over and have to say that I've had salad both ways. In some cases, I've really enjoyed my salad after my entrée. Not sure if it's more family tradition.

How about you? Are you a salad before or after and why?

  1. Neither.I like my salad on my dinner plate and eat it together with my meal.

    1. Depends. The Italian side if the family eats it after. At home we eat it in the same plate but I usually eat it first because it isn't very good. At a restaurant I enjoy it before my meal.

        I have to say the same for my Italian family, most before but, some after.

        1. I'm a salad chick..
          I've enjoyed before and after the entrée.. depends on the dish.
          I've made some fab salads as my entree..friends say that I do salads like nobody else.
          Guess I got that going for me, which is nice.

            Nothing like a fresh crisp salad with an awesome dressing. Lately, I've been enjoying grilled romaine with a drizzle of EVOO and aged balsamic.

          2. At home after. In restaurants before while others eat apps.
