This is important.

Posted on

71. Olives

Literally overpower the entire salad. Have no place in one.

60. Sunflower seeds

Too small. Immediately fall to the bottom with no hope of resurrecting to the top.

53. Artichoke hearts

Kind of bland. Kind of a bad topping. Kind of unnecessary.

51. Sprouts

Kinda stringy. Seems like a better idea than it actually is.

49. JalapeƱos

Not ideal for a salad but if you need something spicy this is where you obviously go.

44. Crispy noodles

TBH the worst of the "crunchy" chiplike add-ons. Still, any breadlike crunchy thing in a salad is good.

33. Pine nuts

Also a decent nut. We need to talk about pine nuts more often.

25. Cottage cheese

Severely underrated. Needs more play in mainstream salad media.

17. Bacon

Ton of flavor. Is bacon. Kind of defeats the purpose of *getting a salad* though. Fabu!

3. Chicken

Arguably the most important part of the salad unless you are a vegetarian. End of story.
