What's yours? And do you eat it as a full meal or does it always have to be a prelude for something bigger?

My favorite soups:

French onion
Easter borscht
Zupa ogorkowa
Zupa pomidorowa
Miso
Shin Ramyun
Cream of mushroom

Salads:

Potato
Chicken with honey mustard
KFC Coleslaw   
Macaroni

Salads:

There used to be this pizza place by my mom's old office run by a nice Eastern European family that made the most ridiculously amazing Greek salad. They used cheap, grocery store lettuce, tomatoes, olives (I always ordered it without olives though), and feta....but the dressing and chicken were out of this world. I don't know how they made the dressing and chicken, but all I know is that they were doing it right. Unfortunately about a year or so ago they were bought out and decided to open a pastry shop nearby, where they no longer serve salads.

I've got a serious weak spot for Ziggy's Macaroni Salad. Honestly, I don't even buy it anymore because I have zero will power to resist the stuff if it's sitting in my fridge.

KFC Coleslaw

Cracker...  

I love cole slaw, although my favorites are ones with alternatives to the creamy mayo dressing. There's an Asian slaw recipe I really like with a sesame-ginger-honey dressing.

I also love a nice tossed spinach salad with assorted veggies, some balsamic and oil, a bit of blue cheese or feta.

As for soups, I'm not much of a soup man, but I do like a really thick split pea soup (if the spoon doesn't stand upright, it's not thick enough) and black bean soup with cheddar and sour cream.

I love good Chili con carne. Unfortunately, there's a lot of mediocre-to-bad chili out there, but nothing beats the good kind over white rice with some sharp cheddar shredded on top.

Potato-Leek

Fitzgerald's Casino in Reno used to serve the most delicious Potato-Leek soup. That's just one more reason why I'm sad that Fitzgerald's closed.

Agreed. I make mine with probably more bacon than is recommended by the American Heart Association, but I figure that I avoid enough cholesterol in other ways that I can afford to eat really good split pea soup once or twice a year.

Leave the sour cream off mine and I'll be right there.

Potato

Like Chili, there is a lot of mediocre and bad potato salad out there amongst the good. I like mine very tangy with green olives or dill pickles cut up in it.

As long as the person making it doesn't go crazy adding raw onions, I love it.

Quoting DocLightning (Reply 4):

For me it's either baby spinach or baby greens, balsamic and oil, blue cheese or feta, slivered almonds or sunflower seeds, and sliced grilled chicken breast. I also like sliced Roma (plum) tomatoes on a salad, but I'm picky about them and they have to be "just right"- not under-ripe or over-ripe in the least.

I love soups and stews of all sorts and am always on the hunt for new ones, here are just a few of my likes:

American
Chicken & dumplings (omg, my absolute favorite. You have to roast the chicken with many herbs before pulling it apart for the soup)
Beef stew many different variations, but my mother used to make one with beef, potatoes, carrots onions and a few tomatoes in the broth and put a head of cabbage in it towards the end)


And since I live in Honolulu, i llike to eat a range of ethnic soups (now don't shoot me if these aren't 'authentic' to the country. We do differently in Hawaii).

korean soondooboo
korean yukaejong
vietnamese beef stew (bon kho)
vietnamese bun bo hue
chinese chicken jook

Japanese
Tan Tan Ramen with pork katsu
Bukkake Udon (yes it sounds nasty but it's good)

and a rare treat is a good bouillabaisse



Salads,

I have, all my life, have been a Potato Salad afficionado (I know, subjective, but I like what i like). I loved my grandmothers potato salad and never learned how to make it. It'll always be a good memory of mine. I like mayo or (miracle whip) based ones. There's a particularly good one here called a Red White and Blue which consists of Red Potatoes, White (for the mayo I guess) and Blue for the blue cheese added among other things.

Love a good tossed salad with as many veggies as I can find.

You hit the nail on the head.

I'm holed up in bed with the flu, so tomato soup hit the spot an hour or two ago. But under ideal (non-sick) condition, split pea is awesome.



The above post is my opinion. Don't like it? Don't read it.

Clam Chowder from Legal Sea Foods. Wish I could find it in WA. Ivar's is good but not as good as Legal's.

What a wonderful question.

I like Chicken and Sweetcorn Soup and Mushroom Soup. Funny enough I don't like chicken and sweetcorn soup when I'm in China.

I love Waldorf Salad and Greek Salad. I actually had a Greek Salad today for lunch. It was lovely.

Manhattan (Red) or New England (white/hurl)
I'm not a cream soup person. Some of them are hurl inducing along with pea soup! Can anyone say Exorcist?

My likes in no particular order:
Won Ton
Italian Wedding
Jewish Chicken and Matzo Ball Soup
Ministrone
Beef Barley (no cream)
Manhattan Clam Chowder
Maryland Crab Soup
Cabbage Soup

Salads:
Potato
Chicken or Turkey Salad
Egg Salad... These three must have Real Mayo, not light Mayo or perish the thought Kraft hurl inducing Miracle Whip which smells like stinky feet.
Shrimp Salad
Caesar Salad
Spinach Salad

Tossed Salad No, not that kind of tossing the salad which is all the rage in a prison near you!
