I was at my local supermarket the other day and was tempted by a taco salad I saw in the salad bar. It looked really good. I’m not a germaphobe, a clean freak, etc, etc, but I did start thinking “how long has the salad been sitting there?” I started talking myself out of it. But the food did look good. I’ve known some people over the years who just get their supper a couple of times a week, a big heaping salad from the supermarket salad bar.
Any of our readers ever do it? I don’t think I’ve ever had a supermarket salad, but they do always look good. I’m guessing the salads are priced on weight? You fill up a plastic clamshell with salad and then it’s weighed and priced?
So, what do you think, are supermarket salad bars a good thing, bad thing, indifferent?
