    I’d be ok with a supermarket salad bar, but there are none in my area. The one you couldn’t identify looks like broccoli salad to me. Anybody ever eat a a Sweet Tomatoes? Excellent salad with premade salads as well as all the ingredients to make your own. Plus 5 or 6 different soups, pasta, breads and soft serve ice cream! Yum!

    Not for me! They may look good… But I feel they are too germy. Also temp control.. How long have they been sitting out.. Both hot or cold

    I used to work in a supermarket that had a store salad-bar. It was rather popular at the time and it could be rather pricey especially for the heavier items such as fruits, potato & macaroni salad and such. When I worked there I would usually get something for my lunch break from there. I have eaten at others in different states. I like salad bars at restaurants and the ones in the grocery store are great to have around especially when traveling. We have utilized them many times in our travels. I know many people are squeamish about germs but I don’t see any difference between the ones in the grocery stores than the ones in a restaurant. Most I have been too are monitored by someone in the store the same as they do in a restaurant.

    Among the unidentified salads here are my guesses–The back one is a layered salad. The recipes I’ve seen for that have iceberg lettuce as the base, followed by carrots, bacon, frozen peas, and cheddar cheese in layers, topped with a mayonnaise/sugar/and cream dressing on top and sealed to the edge. When you get to your potluck, then you toss it all together. My guess on the front one is a broccoli salad–the kind that has broccoli, broccoli slaw, raisins, peanuts, bacon, and mayonnaise tossed together.

    I usually skip the salad bars because I can make a lot of these salads and have a much larger quantity for the same price. With 4 teens we go more for quantity. If I was by myself, then I’d probably be more inclined.
