If you are on a budget, do not get salad at a salad bar. They normally have chopped ham, steak and eggs. Fill your bowl / container with those items.
Way more protein and nutrients lb for lb. It will also stave off hunger much longer.

You can use the same analysis with vending machines. Check net weight. Something airy and fluffy like chips is a rip off. Go for items more dense like peanuts. More protein and nutrients than chips.

I no longer have to do this financially but when I did, this was a common rule of thumb for me.

Erm...

If you want to live, don't get salad at a salad bar.

I once a long time ago worked at a place everyone knows and eats at.

We prepped the lettuce for the salad bar in the morning by bowling the lettuce heads across the floor into the cooler door, swept it up with the kitchen broom into a dust pan and ran it under water.

Just sayin...

You did rinse it off so I don't see a problem with it. Human bodies are generally tough. They can handle an acceptable level of dirt. It's the old and sick that can't handle it and they normally are not eating out. Not enough to worry about anyway. Sound like you kids had a lot of fun with a very marginal level of harm to society.

Shoulda charged more for mineral-fortified enhanced supersalads.

Make your salads at home?

I get a suitcase of spring mix or whatevs and go to town with cucumber and sliced mushrooms (mycoprotein got your back,) and whatever else I'm in the mood for like radishes or canned olives.

Drizzle fresh lemon juice and olive oil. Salt and pepper.

Keep it simple as always. Best chefs are hungry chefs on a budget.

I do normally but what I have found, I can get a much larger, better and cheaper salad at Jason's Deli. It cost me about three times as much to make that salad at home. For $5 I can make one to go so big it's actually two meals.

And cats piss on it as well as slugs pooing and shagging on it...

Doesn’t bother me as long as it is rinsed...

I would however cringe a little if I found out that DB pissed on it!

Never know what dark alley he has been lurking in and what he might of picked up during his dirty deeds!?
