I wouldn't even expect much from the Fresh Market, but I'm pretty picky about my salads, like iceberg lettuce is NOT an option.

It wasn't iceberg lettuce

They are literally made with items from produce and the deli. They're actually decent salads. It's no different than buying the ingredients and putting them together yourself, as that is what these salads are.

Yeah, I know how they do it. My best friend works for a large, higher end grocery chain maintaining and repairing all the equipment. He's in the deli and produce areas most of his days. I get to hear a lot of stuff.

I didn't even realize a lot of American places put lettuce in their Greek salads...I thought that was something weird people did locally here.

Huh.

It's like going to Taco Bell to get Mexican food.

Apparently you don't know how they do it at the store I bought my salad from, considering you said not to expect anything "real." The salad is completely real... real lettuce, real tomatoes, real onions, real peppers, real olives, and real feta. Nothing unidentifiable. I worked at Publix in high school and I watched the produce/deli employees make the salads in the morning. They'd take the actual ingredients from produce/deli and cut them up/put them together.

If those aren't "real" ingredients in your opinion, then I don't know what to tell you.

The only thing bad about the salad was the surprise potato salad. lol.

Not that Hannah eats salad but that would be a particularly nasty surprise for her since she's allergic to eggs. yikes

yeah... salads aren't rocket science really so I wouldn't think twice about grabbing one from the local "Giant to go" grocery store deli place. I'd think twice more about a salad bar where peoples grubby fingers and snotty noses have been all up in it LOL.

but mmmm... feta LOL

It also depends where you live, I think. Even if grocery stores are making their salads the same way with produce-section produce...if you get a tomato in california or florida it tastes like a tomato. If you buy a tomato at a grocery store in NY, it takes like water. They're SO heavily genetically modified they hardly pass as vegetables, and the same goes for lots of lettuces and stuff, they're completely tasteless, unless you're going out of your way to get organic non GMOs, which aren't easy to find and are way pricier than most "vegetables".

Here, I'd have no issues buying a potato salad, egg salad, tuna salad, shrimp salad, pasta salad, from the deli. A vegetable based salad I'd be way less optimistic about.

I totally agree- I'd much rather a grocery store salad versus a salad bar salad.

I strongly dislike eggs, but luckily I'm not allergic to them. That would be terrible if someone who was allergic took a bite of that salad.

Greek salad is ok.. if you don't have a lot of onions in it. Potato salad.. I don't like at all.
