From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A salad bar is a buffet-style table on which the components of a salad are placed. These often include lettuce, tomatoes, bacon bits, assorted raw vegetables, croutons, and various types of salad dressing. Customers assemble salads with whatever components they wish.
Salad bars have become increasingly common in restaurants, for self-service. Many supermarkets also include a salad bar in the produce or delicatessen section.
Rax Restaurants, a midwest fast food chain similar to Arby's, claims to have pioneered the Salad Bar in the mid-60s. Fitness expert Richard Simmons began a restaurant devoted exclusively to salads, Ruffage, as a complement to his exercise business, but eventually closed it when he decided he had to specialize in his core interest.
