One of these days they need to get on to the post-dinner mayonnaise already.
I'd like to remind you all of the Wikipedia definition of the word "salad":
"Salad is any of a wide variety of dishes including: vegetable salads; salads of pasta, legumes, eggs, or grains; mixed salads incorporating meat, poultry, or seafood; and fruit salads. They may include a mixture of cold and hot, often including raw vegetables or fruits."
This salad totally counts.
