Ah, the side salad – the obligatory nod to your health after you order the Honeymooner Ham Sandwich or the meatloaf or mac and cheese or whatever else you’re actually excited to eat. Just some mixed greens, cheddar, cherry tomatoes, and your choice of dressing – nothin’ fancy. But listen, the side does well at its job, and it deserves credit for that.
It doesn’t take the main stage, it leaves the glory for whatever else is on your plate. Sort of a trusty sidekick to make your meal a mission accomplished. Can we take a minute to give a shout-out to all our side-salads out there? They might not be good leaders, but they are darn good followers. They’re the Robins to your Batman; the Moneypenny to your James Bond, the Chewbacca to your Han Solo. We at The Dish salute you, small but mighty side salad!
