I eat out so seldom that making a salad my main meal at a restaurant is not my goal.
I make a 6qt container of salad to last ~6 days, so the ingredients need to last at least that long.
I've seen a leaf of romaine that wasn't limp on the shelf or limp the next day.
I don't like limp lettuce and it won't be found in my salad.
I use fresh iceburg lettuce, tomatoes, radishes and carrots.
These are items that are the least trouble to chop (important when your bad back limits your time to lean over the kitchen counter, .. i'm tall)
These are also items that I have used in the past with success .
Fancy fixins don't guarantee success, follow thru does and if the salad contents goe bad in two days, then it doesn't do any good.
I will sometimes chop up my last pc of boneless chicken and put it in last remains of the large salad container, but typically they are kept separate.
