The History of the Salad Bar

Perilagu Khan | Jan 5, 2014 09:10 AM

The Khantessa and I recently had a brief discussion on the subject of the salad bar's history in the US. Specifically, we wondered when it appeared, and when it became "all the rage." She said she scarcely remembers them before the 1970s, and although I have no consequential memories before late 1970, I suggested that the salad bar probably began in the 1950s.

I'm sure the Hound community can shed light on this topic.
