Why do some people think that cheese belongs to a salad?
Nevertheless, for those of us who don’t need the cheese thanks, we are still left with the option of the salad with a meal. The number of times I’ve enjoyed meals with friends and they’ve passed on the salad is quite considerable. I wonder what the problem is with the salad? Is it the taste? Is it the connotations it has for some? Does it just not appear appetising?
Salads have been good to me overall. (As long as you ditch the cheese and the onions too. Onions have their place in life, just not in a salad.) The cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, occasionally radishes, sometimes a sprinkle of sweet corn and red and green pepper. Ahhhhh it looks a visual delight and it’s appetising to me.
It’s not the case for everyone, evidently. They just don’t fancy the salad. They will not be convinced by its aesthetic beauty. They will not be convinced by the nutrients it can offer to enhance the body. They will just look at the option of the salad and give it a miss.
There are some things in life that are the equivalent to a salad (obviously without the cheese and the onions, probably substituted with the peppers and sweetcorn). It might be truly beautiful to appreciate and it may do real good to us if we digest it, but as its offered we consider it and give it a miss.
That’s a real shame. It could do us some good.
