As a young Australian, you might have grown up with iceberg lettuce. That was a nucleus of a salad. Then came this exotic sort of leaf. We evolved to deal with that.

But, take a trip to the USA and order a salad and... BOINGA! Could you please repeat that? They have a veritable blitzkrieg level of salad types and then you have to choose the dressing! It's a fair dinkum mind blower if you're not ready for it.

We work our way through 24 different salads and dressings. Then we get onto salads that might as well be a dessert. Bring on the marshies I say.

When it comes to today's sign-off... feel free to jump on the conga line and join in.
