Of all the possible side dishes and delicacies on Turkey Day, salad?
I was born in California and I love California, my mom went to the University of Oregon, and my parents now live in Nevada; we are of the West. But I am ashamed, and I rebuke every single one of you who answered "salad." https://t.co/UpJP9HwXSZ

I'm a lifelong Californian who has never had salad on Thanksgiving. This is an odious lie. https://t.co/g8rJFwK0D2

If you bring salad to my Thanksgiving you will eat it outside by yourself. https://t.co/AazlyRlPX8

Ideally, Thanksgiving should have all of the above…except salad. https://t.co/felWxYFWT8

This is misleading. It's a very special, big salad in a fancy bowl. Leave us alone. https://t.co/zZ4AJHdFLB

To be fair, there were only 931 responses to this and it was conducted a few years ago, so perhaps this is not representative.
But, still, salad?
