Learn More About The Salad Drawing

The term salad describes a wide variety of dishes whose main ingredient is usually raw vegetables. Salads may also be made from fruit, grains, nuts, or chopped meats.

Salads are usually served cold and have been touted for their health benefits since ancient times.

Wild greens seasoned with salt, vinegar, and oil were likely the first salads. In fact, the word "salad" is derived from a term meaning "salt."

This is due to the fact that salads were seasoned with salt brine or salty dressings in ancient Rome. Since these greens were the first fresh foods available after winter, they provided vital nutrients following a bland winter diet of preserved foods.

In the 1600s, playwright William Shakespeare used the term "salad days" to describe the inexperience of youth, similar to the way the term "green" may be used today.

In modern times, salads may represent spring and summertime or modern health-food fads.
