One of my friends, always, no exception, when eating in restaurant, asks for salad dressing on the side. Any kind of restaurant - Babbo to coffee shop. This seems somewhat off to me since part of the experience of eating somewhere is tasting the food as they serve it. In her home she serves salad 'undressed' and places variety of bottled dressings on the table (yikes!).
This seems to me to be anti-food-electual. I don't get the idea that this is about dieting, she adds or messes (dips) with the dressing while she is eating. Does anyone else think her habit is annoying or inappropriate?
