Soup vs Salad. This tough debate continues to rage on, ever since a menu included both controversial dishes. Although the listeners and guests voiced their opinions, there is no correct answer. When deciding between soup vs salad, it all comes down to what you value.

Soup vs Salad: Why Would You Want Either of Them

Before we can discuss the merits of each, first you must be on board that both are solid culinary jawns. If you think food in water is gross and you hate greens, then you should sit this one out. During this debate you can go see a nutritionist, because most likely you will need help filling in on the missed value from these incredible dishes.

Why Salad Rocks

Salad is green. Green is good.It's hard to knock the value of Salad when it's one of the most healthiest things you can eat. All them veggies and nuts and meat. Even steak can join the vegetable party that is a salad. And if you hate healthy food, you can always opt for potato salad. That's just carbos covered in mayo. And somehow that's still a salad!

Why Soup Rules

It's too hot to hold, too much to handle. Well it's also a liquid. They are all hard to hold.Just because salad is green, doesn't mean soup isn't healthy. There are plenty of health benefits to consuming soup. Plus nothing hits the spot like a hearty soup on a cold day. Sure you could opt for a salad before your entree, but it's not the same as a baller soup. Starting off with a lobster bisque is how you want to begin your birthday or anniversary dinner. None of this mixed green nonsense.

The People Have Spoken

After running a poll on Twitter, the results are clear.

Apparently the Twitterverse prefers soup to salad.
