Why Don't People Get That Fruits And Vegetables Shouldn't Mix In Salads?

Get these fruits out of my goddamn salad.

Hi. Here is a picture of a salad.

Fresh, crunchy lettuce, ripe tomatoes, juicy onions, shredded carrot, and a creamy, savory dressing. This is a perfectly acceptable garden salad.

And here, a delicious-looking fruit salad.

Don't you feel magically refreshed just looking at this colorful bowl?

This, however, is NOT a salad.

Someone please tell me what these berries are doing on my bed of lettuce!?!

Allow me to explain: Fruits and salads DO NOT MIX, people. Vegetables are savory. Fruits are sweet. It is weird and unpleasant and sketchy to mix them in one bowl with salad dressing.

BTW: For the point of this exercise, tomatoes and avocados will be considered vegetables and not fruits, because we all know they are basically veggies, despite their official scientific classifications.

For reference, I've gathered some salads that should not exist in the world.
