When you go out to eat and you choose an entree the waitstaff will ask you... "would you like soup or salad with that?" now I am more of a salad person unless they have an unusual/or different type of soup on the soup of the day menu, such as a french onion soup... or a special chili like white bean chicken chili....yum!!!! so when you are asked....what do you choose?

I definitely choose the salad. I'm not a big soup eater but I do love salads. I enjoy being able to choose a delicious dressing and try different toppings for my salad. You just made me hungry for a salad..haha I may have to make one as a part of my lunch or dinner tomorrow night.

I'm a salad person, myself. I've always loved salads. I liked just plain lettuce a lot when I was a small child.I didn't really like salads that much until I started first grade. I remember my first day of school, I thought I would be expected to clean my plate. We had a salad with french dressing and other ingredients and when I ate it, I realized what I had been missing out on. I especially like Ruby Tuesday's salad bar. They have a lot of good ingredients. Kathy.

I like to have both. The soup as an appetizer and salad as a dessert. I need soup before all other food. I love to eat salad after all other food. My favorite soup is the mushroom soup. My favorite salad is potato salad.

I love salads! I almost always choose to have a salad instead of soup. Then again, I'm not much of a soup person. I do, however, enjoy soup when I'm feeling under the weather.

It much depends on the restaurant where I´m going. I make wonderful soups so I´m a little afraid tha their soups won´t be up to my expectations. But I love salads but don´t eat them every day because I´m lazy. THe soups I like best are potato and onions, spinach and leek cream. I like tomato poups only when I have tomatoes from my vegetable garden. They taste completly different.

I love a good soup but I also love a good salad. I guess it would depend where I was and if it was cold or hot outside. If I go out to eat having salad or soup might be my meal as it is hard for me to eat a lot at one sitting. especially if there is fresh bread or rolls with it. wow, now I am hungry. makes me think of this delicious broccolli cheddar soup at ruby tuesday's.
