I'm just wondering but, what exactly is American about this salad? Is it just me, or does this salad just sound random vs. American? I mean unless you decide that anything with bacon in it is American... but goat cheese? Really?

It is one of the daily specials at my work cafeteria:

Quote:
AMERICAN SALAD

Goat cheese, bacon, corn, grape tomatoes,

black bean salsa, apple cider vinaigrette

The bacon.

Or the "melting pot" theory; multiple nationality-esque ingredients in a single food item sort of deal. Though the bacon is clearly the most important.

Corn and tomatoes are distinctly New World produce that didn't exist in Europe before 1492. I suppose that sort of makes them American. To me, bacon always screams Italian since they have so many different forms of cured and/or smoked pork products they use in their dishes.

Corn and black beans is a distinctly southwest flavor. That's not to say it's American in nature, but maybe that's where they're coming from.

The obvious answer is that Americans love to fatten up their healthy foods with Bacon and Cheese.

I don't know where you are, but California is known for producing a decent amount of goat's milk cheese. They don't come close to France's production, but they are known for it.

I guess since "American Cheddar" is processed food product, I was genuinely surprised that goat cheese would be associated with America. It seems a little too posh, you know?

Thank god, I remember reading an article a while back about how people have a fear of blue foods. Think about it, there really aren't any true blue foods. Blueberries are more violet colored. Plums are definitely purple.

That said, blueberries are the standard go-to for making red, white & blue foodstuffs. Usually on a vanilla topped cake or cheesecake and sharing the stage with strawberries.

Yeah, I know. I was just trying to play up the blue food phobia, despite the fact that I love blueberries. And nice link Joph. The guy in that article had a much more coherent argument than on a few of the sites I was reading.

We put borage in our salads at home (we grow it) - it is a blue edible flower: PIC

Huh, maybe I'll make a REAL american salad for dinner tonight, with borage, tomatoes and a suitably delicious white food... maybe I'll just use white cheese of some kind...

And borage even looks a bit like a five pointed star!

Mmmmkay thanks for helping me figure out dinner. I think veggie dogs with american salad will be on the menu tonight. Happy 4th of July folks.

Also, if I had bought this, you would be right, but I am smart enough to rarely eat at the work caf. Though I get lazy and hopeful and check the specials just in case something doesn't sound terrible.

Too posh? We're not all back water hicks you know... I personally love goat cheese.

The problem with American culture is that we have so many different types of cultures, it's hard to point at distinct things and say "Hey, that's American!" Unless you start talking about stuff like hamburgers, hot dogs and apple pie.

To be fair, internally, we divide it up because we know the differences between the various regions of the US, which, combined with our history, is what makes it so **** difficult for us to pick out something as universally "American Culture" One would think similar internally obvious regional differences in other countries would give them a similar issue, but then you remember that America is, geographically, ******* enormous compared to most of the world.

It's obviously a fusion dish, with ingredients taken from diverse cultures. I don't know that you can say anything in America is truly "American". Everything seems to derive in some way.

Having been to all four, I agree, given how ******* massive Chicago is (I live in Bloomington, but I have a doctor's appointment in Chicago on monday... at 9am.... the last one was at 3pm, and that took us 3 hours (2 to get to the city). SO many degrees of "not looking forward to it."), but you can't deny that St. Louis, KC, and Indy are fairly urban areas. relative to the rest of the midwest. Also, lolchicago, thinking they're the windiest part of the state.

I've never accused the British "people" (such as they are) of being excessively polite.

I thought that it was the Dutch that were tagged with excessive politeness.

Brits are snarky. Smiley: grin

Don't you know everything was better in the 70s?

Except clothing...and decor..and food.

You know what? Never mind.


Also in Britain sarcasm is our first language, Elinda.

Yea... most of the Brits I know are pretty far from "polite", though I'm sure part of that is due to my being an American. The ones that I've seen be polite, however, rarely stay that way long. Also joph, you borked the quote, since I didn't say that bit. I would have made sure to mention that all Brits are clinically obsessed with tea, to the point that missing tea time is sacrilege, and a capital offense.

The Dutch aren't the polite ones, they're the potheads. They are polite, but that's mostly because they're so mellow from being perpetually stoned that they can't muster up enough of a @#%^ to be rude. If I were to pick on nationality to be the overly polite one, it'd probably be either Germans (if you want a European country) or Canadians (if we're talking world-wide). It'd be Japanes people, but they're all raging xenophobes, hiding behind their polite masks. Honestly, the Brits aren't really rude, either, I agree with "snarky" being the best term. The rude ones would be, based on my own personal experiences, the Italians. The French are more obnoxious than rude, and I've met some cool French people, but I've never spoken with a single Italian person (born/raised in Italy, not italian americans like you find on Jersey shore, though they're a close second) who didn't have me wanting to strangle them within 10 minutes of conversation. @#%^ Italians.

I keep coming back to this because it sounds so yummy. Is it any kind of tomato or a specific kind like roma?

Actually, when I was a junior in high school, we had a guy from Italy as an exchange student and he was a total sweetheart. In addition to having the **** accent. He was also incredibly naive, either that or really good at playing stupid. One of my classmates succeeded in convincing him that Americans are so dirty, we wear condoms on our tongues when we kiss. But in general, from what I hear, Italians tend to be very pushy and aggressive. Or at least the men are.
