If there was one dish I could eat
For all the rest of my days
A salad to me is a natural treat
Enjoyed in infinite ways
It’s more than just a bowl of greens
With dressing dolloped on top
It matters not just where your taste leans
Grab veggies, a knife and just chop!
It eats as a meal or a simple side dish
And all its varieties suit
You can add steak, eggs or some fish
Or it’s dessert when you mix in some fruit
I often will eat it right out of the bowl
I make it as big as I please
Don’t ask me to share I scarf it up whole
Especially if there is blue cheese!
To me I think salad is better than good
So much so I wrote this short ballad
I’ll argue this dish might be THE perfect food
And YES you can make friends with salad!
