In Scandinavia, salad also refers to a blend of vegetables in a dressing used as a condiment on top of the open sandwich, smørrebrød, and with meats. Examples include cucumber salad, horseradish salad, Italian salad (a mixture of vegetables in a crème fraîche/mayonnaise dressing, served on ham), and Russian salad (a red beet salad).

I love salads and I eat a lot of salads expecially during summer days because it gives me fresh and tasty feelings...As a matter of fact the traditional Italian salad is a sort of mixed salad with green salad, tomatoes and sometimes cucumbers...anyway a salad needs green salad to be called like this..we use oil for salad in Italy and vinegar, too and neither mayonnaise nor creme...when we use mayonnaise we prepare another kind of salad we call Russian salad that is made by boiled potatoes, carrots, pea all mixed together with mayonnaise...then you can make a salad with many other vegetables of course...as far as myself is concerned I like adding to the traditional Italian sald ham or cheese so to have a complete meal...oh by the way there is another traditional Italian salad called Caprese, that mean coming from Capri...Capri is an island, a beautiful island in the south of Italy and Caprese refers to a salad made only with a special kind of tomatoes (called in Italy POMODORINI!!) and mozzarella!!!
