Before the entree?
With the entree?
After the entree?
We grew up eating salad with the main meal, as a vegetable. Of course dining out in America salad is pretty much served before the entree. My mother was a rebel and would always save her salad for when the entree was served. Some waiter would try and take it away thinking she was done and she would smack his hand! I often do the same as I take after my mom!
I could never get used to the European way of salad at the end of the meal. All I want after the main meal is a sweet dessert!
