If I put broccoli and carrots in a bowl, would that qualify as a salad?

Or do you need leafy green vegetables?

    They would need to be seasoned and dressed like a salad in order to be called a salad. Otherwise, they're just a side dish or crudités. I often make a cucumber salad, which simply consists of sliced cucumbers and onions and dressing (vinegar, spices, etc.)

    You don't need 'leafy green vegatables' for it to qualify as a salad.

    It just needs to be cold with some type of 'dressing'.

    You can call it salad, food in a bowl, veggies in a bowl, carrots and broccoli in a bowl.

    When eating alone, you don't have to name the dish or meal anything other than food. And a dish made up of only one vegetable, can be called a salad if you like.

    You do not have to add leafy greens.

    Well, egg salad does not have any leafy greens in it, nor does potato salad.

    Yes, it is a salad, and you don't need to include green vegetables to make a salad

    Yes, it would qualify as a salad as the definition of salad is very loose. Salads do usually have a dressing, but not required.
