Question: I'm going to a party tonight and i've been asked to take a salad!. would it be bad to buy one!?
my need for sitting in a beer garden all afternoon is greater than my need to make a salad!.!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Buy it!. Enjoy the day!Www@FoodAQ@Com

It is socially risky to bring a salad that has come prepackaged to a party!. You could be sitting in a beer garden all evening, and suddenly one of the party people, with a blood alcohol level of 0!.15, will exclaim, "Hey! MY salad here was chopped up in a FACTORY! WHat am I DOING eating THIS SALAD that was chopped up in a FACTORY!!! WHOSE dumb idea was THIS!?!?!?!?!?" And then you'll never be able to live this down for the rest of your life!. You will be forever be known as the bagged salad lady!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

The answers range from "it's fine" to "it's incredibly tacky"!.

It depends on how formal the party is, indoor vs outdoor, etc!.

I'd never do it, since making a salad is hardly a huge investment of time! There's lots of clever, creative ones that can be thrown together in under 10 minutes!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Of course you could bring one:) !.!.!. and you could "tweak" it a little: Get 1/2 lb!. coleslaw at the deli section; add to 1 bag of shredded lettuce (produce section), with 1 TB!. of horseradish and some dried dillweed!. and mix it up!. The bought coleslaw is usually "soupy" enough to coat ALL the cabbage well enough:) You can toss in some dry roasted peanuts too!.!.!.!. Or, you can just open & drain some cans of cut green beans, kidney beans, garbanzo beans & wax beans and toss with Balsamic Vignarette dressing for a bean salad!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

No its not wrong!. Just make sure you buy it ahead of time and put it in a bowl of your own!. Unless you really dont care about hiding the fact you drank beer all afternoon instead of taking 20 mins to 1 hr of the day to make the salad!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

No it isn't wrong to buy one!. But you can avoid the look of buying one!. Just buy it from the store but transfer it to one of your own dishes!. If somebody asks you can say it is a family secret receipe,Www@FoodAQ@Com

There is no rule that says make your own, buy it!. At least u know it will taste nice ans its fresh!.Go to Salisbury's or marks and Spencer's, they have all sorts of salads!. U need time to get ready and have funWww@FoodAQ@Com

I dont think its bad to buy one at all!. If you are real creative, you can buy it, and put it in a pretty dish from your house to make it look pretty!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Nah, go ahead and buy one, especially if you don't have time to make one!.

Just put it in your own dish, and 99% of the time, no one will ever know you didn't make it!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
