I keep the fresh veggies high and the higher-cal items to a minimum, so I would go plate by plate.
Ex: First trip, got one plate (approx 2 cups) with veggies xyz (1 cup) and toppings xyz (.25 cup) etc. Maybe log it in your phone as you go?

There is a generic entry in the Tracker for "Tossed Salad" which lists 1.5 cups at around 33 calories. This would be a good guesstimate, if your salad contained assorted types of lettuce/ spinach leaves, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, onion, etc. Typical salad vegetables. It's the add-on's that add the calories. Bacon bits, croutons, cheese, dressing, nuts and seeds, etc.
So you could guesstimate how many cups' worth of each individual thing you took. Or use the generic "Tossed Salad" and then just guesstimate how much of the higher calorie stuff you took.
I guess the weights/spoon measures of the individual ingredients and put them in individually. I don't go for dressings, but if they have them in, I try to drain them off (not keen on them) and then just add dressing into the tracker. There isn't really much else you can do.

Do you track each thing individually? Or is there a valid estimate?
