    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?

    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.

    Ate at a restaurant in New Orleans that offered “Men’s salads,” so I tried the steak salad. It was a piece of lettuce under an 8 oz. steak.

    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.

    Maybe giving Opal a gift certificate to a cooking school would be a good investment.

    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?

    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.

    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”?

    That happened to my husband and me a few years ago. Except for us it was voles. They ate everything except the okra.
