It’s Monday, y’all, meaning it’s time for another Eating Styles post. A while back, we asked you what is your favorite kind of salad dressing? Today’s question comes to us from Cynthia, who asked: when you have a salad, do you put the dressing over the top or on the side?

Once you start thinking about it, there are a surprising number of ways to have dressing on your salad. You can have none at all or “just dip your fork in it!” as Hungry Girl suggests, which basically equates to none at all. You can order it on the side and then end up pouring it all over your salad anyway, like I do. Or you can pour it over your salad to begin with like a normal person. Or you can be like my dad, and have a bowl of dressing with a few leaves of lettuce thrown in. Still other salads, like tossed or vinaigrette-based salads, are meant to have dressing on them because the dressing is intrinsic to the salad itself.

    Why take a risk on ruining a perfectly good salad with a dressing that either drowns the veggies or tastes horrible? Side car is always a safe bet.

    I voted top because I feel that restaurants do a decent job of not drowning my salads. Also, I am not a common consumer of salads so I can’t be too particular because whenever salads DO grace my plate, I am in dire need of the nutrition in front of me.

    On a side note, I’ve noticed a fair number of restaurants that serve the dressing on the side automatically. I suppose that cuts down on people sending their greens back for being over or under dressed.
