2/25/2016 – Salad


Welcome to Five Course Trivia! Five days a week, we’ll post five questions about something from the culinary world, from soup to nuts and all dishes in between.

Today, we cover a topic I’ve been avoiding since I’m not a fan, but I guess some of you are.


Well, here’s five questions on salad. (Well, three of them, since two aren’t leafy salads)

1. The salad seen here, which includes olives, hard-boiled eggs, and tuna, is in the style of which namesake European city?

4. Caprese salad, coming from the island of Capri, is a very simple Italian salad, consisting of a certain sliced fruit, a certain cheese, and a certain herb, and then season with salt and olive oil.

5. While ingredients like celery, egg, onion, and pickles are often added later, the two main ingredients of a tuna salad are tuna and what?

Learned League precedent (LL44, MD20) – Along with its various meats and cheeses, and namesake bread, what type of salad is an important component of an authentic muffuletta sandwich?
