RECIPE: BURST OF SUNSHINE SALAD

Man and his ancestors have been eating salad greens since they crossed from homonids (great apes) to hunter-gatherers.

Yes, indeed. A salad is a dish consisting of small pieces of food, typically served cold and usually mixed with a sauce (called salad dressing).
Beyond vegetable salads of all types, raw or cooked, there are bean salads, grain salads, pasta and noodle salads and meat/poultry/protein salads such as chicken, egg, tuna and seafood.
The leafy green salads most of us think of as “salad” is technically “garden salad” or “green salad.”
The word “salad” comes from the Latin salata, salty. During Roman times, the vegetables were seasoned with brine or salty oil-and-vinegar dressings. In English, the word first appears as “salad” or “sallet” in the 14th century.
