Now that I think about, don’t chicken sandwiches at fast-food places (McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, or even Chick-fill-A) also count as a salad when there’s lettuce and tomato in it?
What is this salad?
That food item always reminds me of “chicken salad sandwich luck”: “That guy’s so lucky he could fall into an Arab privy and come out holding a chicken salad sandwich.”
Earl should be happy that Opal is even bringing him something good to eat.
Earl stop being lazy and do it yourself !
So, he’s concerned there is not enough lettuce, tomato, celery, whatever? If I got a chicken salad that was all chicken, I certainly wouldn’t gripe about it. (This doesn’t have enough lettuce, tomato, celery, whatever, can I have egg salad instead?)
Seems unlike Earl to complain about a lack of greenery in his sandwich.
Maybe it’s strictly a semantic correction…. he doesn’t want more lettuce…
He’s just pointing out a flaw in the nomenclature.
In which case, Opal may wish to point out a flaw in his expectations.
Namely, that he expects lunch.
My wife’s chicken salad has celery, grapes, mayo,and honey. It sure is good on hot summer days.
better chicken salad than chicken you know what…
Maybe giving Opal a gift certificate to a cooking school would be a good investment.
Salad. What real food eats.
Mayo peace be with you……. Lettuce pray.
I couldn’t agree more; a salad should be of the lettuce variety…
Wait a few days and when it turns green will it then be salad enough for you?
Earl knows how to push her button.
Why is it people refer to a type of sandwich spread as tuna FISH salad, but not chicken BIRD salad. It’s not that there’s a tuna other than a fish. (insert pun about tuna piano)
Chicken Salad is one of my husband’s favorite meals! Fortunately the deli at our local grocery makes the best in town and I just doctor it up a bit.
To me – salad is greens and other vegetables. Not some crappy mayo-mixed conglomeration that ruins the taste of anything it is added to.
you forgot the Sweet relish in the onions
Did the “salad” chicken out?
Forget the sandwich part. I love homemade chicken or tuna salad served on a large avocado half.
I will occasionally make burritos with chicken or tuna salad because I don’t like sandwich bread.
Who says “What’s on this sandwich” instead of “What’s in this sandwich”?
I don’t think you understand the word grateful
It can get confusing.
Chicken salad, egg salad, good stuff!
“You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.”
Earl is pining for his salad days.
That happened to my husband and me a few years ago. Except for us it was voles. They ate everything except the okra.
