A salad is a dish consisting of a mixture of small pieces of food, usually featuring vegetables.
They are typically served at room temperature or chilled, with notable exceptions such as south German potato salad which is served warm.
Salads may contain virtually any type of ready-to-eat food.
Garden salads use a base of leafy greens like lettuce, arugula, kale or spinach
They are common enough that the word salad alone often refers specifically to garden salads. (source)
