When does a salad become a "meal" unto itself?

ipsedixit | Jul 21, 2013 10:55 AM

For those of you who will eat a salad by itself as a meal (as opposed to a side or an appetizer), what for you makes a salad a meal?

Is it the addition of some sort of protein like fish or meat?
Or some sort of dairy product like cheese or eggs?
The addition of beans, or legumes?
Using some sort of nuts (like walnut, almonds, etc.)?
Some sort of starch like rice, pasta, or a grain?
Size and quantity?

Or is it simply a state of mind?
