Any of the many different foods that fall into the following main categories are considered salads: green salads, vegetable salads, pasta, legume, or grain salads, mixed salads with meat, poultry, or seafood, and fruit salads. Although some salads, like German potato salad, are sometimes served hot, most salads are typically served cold. When you want a light and healthy meal, a salad is the type of cuisine you eat. Both vegetarian and non-vegetarian salads are available. Fruits, vegetables, meat, or seafood can all be used to produce salads. The taste of the salad is then enhanced by the addition of seasoning or salad dressing.  

Appetizer: An appetiser is a starter that is given as a meal's first course to stimulate the appetite. Make it with fresh fruit, raw vegetables, or crisp greens, and serve it in tiny portions. 

Accompaniment: Served alongside the main course on a dinner or salad plate. This salad's colour, flavour, and texture contrast should be pleasingly different from the remainder of the dinner. Whether raw or cooked, use crisp greens, fruits, or vegetables. 

Main Dish: The ingredients must be satisfying and substantial. You can make it with any combination of fruit and cheese, vegetables, meat, fish, eggs, poultry, or vegetables and fruit. This is frequently served hot and in serving sizes that correspond to meals. 

Dessert: This could be a fruit jelly or fruit mixture-based frozen, moulded, or sweetened salad. Typically, whipped cream is included in the dressing. This salad adds a colourful, flavorful, and textured delight to the dinner.

6. Greens should not be handled excessively. 

7. Avoid dressing excessively. 

8. Salad should not be dressed or salted until just before serving. 

9. Cut or break into bite-sized bits. 

10. Three to four ingredients maximum should be used at once. 

11. You should drain your ingredients well. 

12. For a texture contrast, use components that are crunchy and soft.

Before serving, crisp up greens by submerging them in ice water for a few hours. Before serving, thoroughly drain. Depending on the use, you can shred or chop up your vegetables. Avoid overhandling to prevent bruised and wilted greens. Keep in plastic. As the greens could rust, wait to wash until you're ready to use it. Never freeze up.
